As promised, we are not leaving you in the lurch for the rest of this holiday season. We'll be popping in a bunch to share hot tips and info about all sorts of ways to make your holiday indie and awesome.
First up, Serena McCarroll's new book, All Citizens, celebrates its official launch in Toronto tomorrow night. It is a fantastic document following a personal journey she and her former partner had leaving Vancouver, moving to the middle of nowhere and trying to bring art to a very small community. A fascinating must-read for any of us craft city folks.
Those who came out to City of Craft this past weekend probably encountered Serena in her All Citizens installation room. All Citizens and Serena have worked with City of Craft multiple times. After all, we are a city and she is a citizens. And just look at the line-up below - all kinds of familiar faces!
Featuring music by celebrated songwriter Magali Meagher (The Phonemes) and indie rock sensations Laura Barrett and Wax Mannequin.
Join artists Reverend Aitor (The Misanthrope Specialty Co), Becky Johnson (Sweetie Pie Press), Jason McLean and Magali Meagher, as they share their experiences visiting All Citizens (or imagining having visited) and their views of music, art and the DIY lifestyle with SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at NSCAD University and member of the Public Access Collective that publishes the art and culture journal Public, Saara Liinamaa. This will be followed by All Citizens author Serena McCarroll in conversation with artist/author Shannon Gerard, whose own visual art operates across several platforms and media.
