Good news Vancouver! Artists Erin Jane Nelson and Ming Lin were able to fully fund their project so they are coming to Vancouver to launch “Summer School”. They are gonna turn Project Space (Artist-Run-Centre) into a free pop-up art school from July 21-25!
Classes include mushroom-spore printing, indigo kites, air tasting, rainbow pasta, and strap weaving! Registration for classes is now open! Space is really limited so you better do it quick!
Sign up for classes, here.
“Give away what you’ve got!” Papergirl was originally started by Aisha Ronniger in 2006. It is an art project in which paper art is given away to unsuspecting people around Berlin via bicyclists. Over the years it has spread to other cities and now there is a Papergirl Vancouver. If you want to submit your artwork or be a bicycle delivery person jump over here.
I dug up the video I posted back in 2009, watch it below!
I’m really excited to team up with Victory Gardens Vancouver for this giveaway. Lisa, Sam and Sandra are challenging the way our city uses space through urban farming!
They’ve hooked me up with two really cool giveaways:
1) Two Tickets to Old Faithful & Victory Gardens Workshop
This is a container gardening workshop and the focus of this event will be on tomatoes and how to grow your own pizza! The workshop takes place on June 9th, from 9:30 – 11:00AM and each participant will walk away with a handmade cedar box planted with tomato and basil.
More info here and here.
2) Victory Gardens and Collage Collage Handmade garden Kit
This kit features a handmade cedar box, drainage rock, earth, seeds, row markers, decorating supplies and instructions on how to grow your own food.
If you’d like to snag either of these prizes we want to see your best “Vegetable Still Life”. Snap a photo and leave a comment below with a link to it. You can use a service like imgur to do it. If you want some inspiration: here, here, here, or here.
We’ll pick two winners on Thursday, June 7th!
