Speaking at the annual CARFAC conference in Toronto this weekend

Performance Art in Canada on  Saturday Sept 20 1:30 – 3:30 pm
Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
This panel discussion will focus on the current status of performance art, within and beyond the genre of visual arts. How does it fit into the programming of such diverse presenters as festivals, artist-run centres, and public museums? What is its potential relationship to community arts practice? Do CARFAC’s performance art fees reflect current performance art practice? Panelists include: Lori Blondeau, Shannon Cochrane, Ruth Howard, Tanya Mars, and Camille Turner.

I’ll also be presenting my sonic walk, HUSH HARBOUR on  Sunday Sept 21 — 1:30 pm
Victoria Memorial Park (at Portland Street, between Niagara and Wellington St W)
Please Download sound file  onto your mp3 player or phone and bring headphones.

The Sonic Walk is a hybrid art-form that evolved from adapting museum/tourist walking tours as a medium of artistic expression. HUSH HARBOUR transforms the space that currently hides the Black presence and enables participants to travel back in time. Artist Camille Turner, creator of HUSH HARBOUR, will be on-site to answer your questions about the Sonic Walk.
