so i'm taking on a new project and since it's going to be a large portion of my life for the next seven months i thought i would write about it here. since 2007 victoria, bc has celebrated the arts by hosting a giant city-wide art crawl. last year i acted as gallery coordinator for the integrate arts festival and brought twenty-nine venues on board. it was amazing...there was so many participants that even i could only make it to twenty (maybe i shouldn't have stopped for dinner? lol).
this year i'm directing the festival...and i'm nervous but so darn excited at the same time! it's going to be bigger and better than ever. more like nuit blanche in toronto or swarm in vancouver. while every arts organization will be invited to participate, this year my goal is to take the art out of the galleries and onto the street. the whole city will come alive with art, culture and surprise performances. #canthardlywait.
