Signed with Love and Rage, PG
Artist residency project developed during the Neighbourhood Time Exchange | Downtown Prince George
Lheidli T’enneh Territory | Prince George, BC (2016)
Curated by Justin Langlois, Collaborative program by Emily Carr University of Art+Design and Downtown Prince George
I was invited to participated in Neighbourhood Time Exchange, an artist residency program based on the concept of time banking. For this month-long residency, I was partnered with Downtown Prince George, a business improvement association. Tasked with creating a historical window display in the downtown core utilizing archival images from the local Museum the resulting works became a series of music events, conversations, and a presentation of archival images, articles, and research that the public could engage with. Through an intervention into “Love Downtown PG”, a Downtown Prince George initiative aimed to support local and independent businesses in Prince George, a series of postcards was created on which individuals living and accessing community resources downtown shared their thoughts, experiences, and expectations of what it means to "Love" Downtown Prince George.
