This Saturday I will be on Bowen taking part in the island's annual writing festival, Write on Bowen. Between 2:15 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. I will be leading a workshop entitled "Writing Daily" at the Montessori School at Artisan Square, and later, between 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., Elee Kraljii-Gardiner and I will reprise our Adventures in Social Writing project at The Gallery, also at Artisan Square (dinner included).

For those in Vancouver this weekend, I have contributed two curatorial projects to the time-based component of the free Summer Live Vancouver 125 program at Brockton Oval. The first, entitled Approaches to Literature, features film/video of bill bissett (Maurice Embra, CBC, 1964), Gerry Gilbert (Western Front Media Archive, 1983) and Judy Radul (Penelope Buitenhuis, Moving Pictures, 1991); the second, Act Natural, is comprised of film/video work by Julia Feyrer (The Poodle Dog Ornamental Bar, 2009), Damian Moppett (1815/1962, 2003) and Althea Thauberger (i'm not afaraid to die, 2001).
