#CdnCult Times; Volume 3, Edition 8


Welcome to The SummerWorks Edition of #CdnCult Times, which asked three artists who are participating in the festival to contribute through different discourses that are supported by the WordPress medium.

Eric Moschopedis and I had an online chat about politics and culture in Canada, which we imported into the site. M. NourbeSe Philip contributed poetry, which we imported as images to ensure the correct layout. Sean Frey and Amy Siegel communicated a narrative about their piece that is primarily image-based.

The resulting edition is analogous to the way The SummerWorks Festival has also grown. The festival has an increasingly national presence, with projects that challenge traditional concepts surrounding form and content in contemporary performance.
