Depository Park is a workshop for visual artists and creative thinkers, in which participants will develop a responsive archive of Odell Park in Fredericton, NB.
During a one-day intensive workshop, Depository Park will see a variety of immersive experiences intended to promote the activity of observation and response. Using Odell Park as a departure point, participants will develop an archive of reflections— a collective depository of images, text, and memorabilia that speaks to participants’ relationship to urban nature.
Registration cost is $12 for non-members / $10 for members and students. All materials will be provided. Prior to the workshop, participants will receive readings and an information pamphlet prepared by workshop leader. A potluck lunch will be shared, please let us know if you have any food allergies/intolerance or dietary restrictions.
Space is limited, please register by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org before March 3rd, 2018.
