About

Slow Wave Small Projects is a one-week intensive program that re-imagines approaches to learning and art-making from feminist, activist, and land-based perspectives. From August 12–18 2019, participants camp at the Old Dogwood Society for Arts and Ecology, taking part in workshops, events, and experiences facilitated by exceptional guest artists. This program strives to centre the practices of artists who are low-income, disabled, queer, trans, two-spirit, Black, Indigenous, or racialized. An honorarium is provided to all program participants.

Slow Wave Small Projects takes place on the Coast Salish territories of the Lekwungen, Snaw-Naw-As (Nanoose), Scia-new (Cheanuh), T’Sou-ke, Malahat, W̱SÁNEĆ, S əwaθn Məsteyəxʷ (Tsawwassen), and the Hul’qumi’num Mustimuhw (Hul’qumi’num speaking people) including Stz’uminus (Chemainus), Cowichan, Halalt, Lake Cowichan, Lyackson, and Penelakut nations.
