Derelict, Flotsam, & Jetsam (A Pecha Kucha Inspired Event)

August 17, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the artists of the 2019 Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency (CWAR) for two evenings of “Pechakucha” style presentations and story-telling during Riverside Arts Fest: 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each – each presenter has 6 minutes and 40 seconds to captivate the audience. Topics range from heartfelt vulnerable confessions to silly and benign ideas, and artist talks to educational lectures. CWAR artists will be joined by a handful of local artists, creators, and community members each with a unique story to tell.

Alchemy Cafe (878 Third Ave)
7 – 9 PM
Friday August 16th & Saturday August 17th

Derelict, Flotsam: a sunken vessel whose goods float to the surface of the sea, or any floating cargo that is cast overboard.
Jetsam: any cargo that is intentionally discarded from a ship or wreckage

The Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency connects artists of all mediums with the natural and cultural landscape of northern Canada through river expedition, personal journey and community engagement. By offering an experience in the emotive landscapes of the Yukon back-country, this residency expands the space within each artist for contemplation, inspiration and creativity, while physically drawing closer members of the Canadian cultural & arts communities.
