Kickstarter of the Day: Twenty-Three Days at Sea

Kickstarter3Kickstarter1

Vancouver’s Access Gallery, in partnership with Burrard Arts Foundation and Art Contraste, is looking to expand their travelling artist residency program, which launched in January of this year. Unlike typical residencies that offer space in a specific place, this one-of-a-kind project sends artists on a twenty-three day voyage aboard cargo ships sailing from Vancouver to Shanghai. The work that emerges from the selected artists’ experiences will be exhibited at Access Gallery and eventually compiled into a published book.

See the video below for more details on this incredibly unique project!
