HOLD FAST to your hats!

It’s here! HOLD FAST Contemporary Art Festival (formerly known as The Art Marathon Festival) is a huge undertaking that I am usually an organizer of…but this year I am one of the artists! Myself and friend Pepa Chan will be taking on a durational performance called Eat Your Heart Out from 8:30 – 11 pm on Saturday, August 20th as part of the Art Crawl. The festival also features…

Daytime Festival Launch BBQ

a Film Screening & Festival Launch Party

Art Crawl & Afterparty

Fancy Artist Talks with unique cocktails sponsored by Third Place Tonic

and a huge variety of Workshops led by artists. Pepa & I will be doing a fun workshop called Balloons & Feelings: a series of theater-based group and partner games that use a precarious item – a balloon – to get you in touch with big complicated feelings.

Pepa & I will be feeding each other a 7 course meal over 2.5 hours while blindfolded. Simple but highly emotional.

Local art hero Mary MacDonald has written a great little festival guide for the Overcast that you can check out here.

The festival allows us to ponder on many important questions…what role does the artist/art serve in our society? How can art transform physical and social spaces? What does engagement look like across different cultures and communities? And, of  course, what colour wig will I wear to Fancy Artist Talks??

Hope to see you there!
