Erica and I are STILL working on the Geyser for Hillcrest Park. It’s a doozy (do people still say that sort of thing??). We’re hoping that it will be completed for Summer 2012– but still waiting for the appropriate approvals from the City and so forth. More news soon…

AND: Norma is getting a Mayor’s Arts Award! Thanks to Barbara Cole for putting us forward. We are… honoured and stoked.

In other news, I’m working on a couple of projects right now:

Thanks to the Canada Council, I’ll be doing a project called Sad Sack, a melancholic moveable event space. It’ll be operational during the saddest months of the year here on the West Coast (which seem to be rapidly approaching, judging from the rain and wind happening outside right now. Oh wait, now it’s sunny.). I’m currently doing some research, thinking a lot (current question: what kind of house booze should I brew?) and starting to ask people to collaborate.

Also I’ll be curating Spatial Poetics 2012, an annual evening of performance and interdisciplinary collaborations, for the always amazing Powell Street Festival. Just in pre-planning now…

And lastly, I’m helping out Other Sights with a Speakers Series for the Langara College for Art in Public Spaces. It’ll be a good one– Claire Doherty, director ofSituations in the UK, is going be here, so you know it will be some quality discussion…
