Creative writing and visual arts students will be launching ten new works for the Dig Your Neighbourhood (DYN) series next Saturday.
DYN is a package of visual art, photography, creative writing, and activities based on a specific geographical and cultural space. In this case: Kelowna’s Rutland area.
It seeks to introduce neighbourhood residents to the cultural and environmental past, present, and future of their place in interesting and interactive ways.
The newest package in the DYN series includes a hilarious Monty Python-esque ‘autobiography’ of John Rutland, a graphic novel for tweens, a dating guide for Rutland, a kids’ book, a walking guide and much more.
The project is a partnership with Welcome Wagon Canada, which delivers the finished work to the neighbourhoods.
Meet the student artists and be there for the handover of the creative packages to the Welcome Wagon on April 12. There will be a draw for one complete package and selected items will be on sale.
To find out more about the DYN project, contact Nancy Holmes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 250-807- 9369.
Date: Saturday, April 12
Time: 1 to 3 p.m.
Location: Hillcrest Farms — 700 Hwy 33 East, Kelowna
Free snacks and drinks. The event is free of charge. All are welcome.
This project is administered by Nancy Holmes, associate dean of research and graduate studies, and is supported by the Eco Art Incubator, Lake Publishing, ArtsVest BC, and the Uptown Rutland Business Association.
