Eco-Echo Poetics on the Move – Under Western Skies 2014
Co-Curators: Dr. Donia Mounsef (U of Alberta) & Dr. Natalie Meisner (Mount Royal U)

These pre-recorded poems/performance pieces practice a gentle kind of artistic hacking by repurposing ecologically significant or interesting urban sites around Calgary as their set or backdrop. Rather than perform live readings, the artists have made their work available via downloadable audio recording. You can travel to the chosen sites and/or listen to the pieces at your own convenience.
