HIBERNATION PROJECT THEMES 2022

We are delighted to announce the themes for the 4th Hibernation Project, our annual DIY domestic art intervention bridging Winter to Spring. A tool for embracing and combating Winter in Canada, each weekend an open community of artists, musicians, performers, and participants respond to a theme, making new work and sharing old work for an intimate audience. This year, locations range from tobogganing hills, to domestic space, to community radio, and beyond!

Ears Have Eyes

The Hibernation Project has launched a Radio Show, and we’re accepting Sound Art submissions! EARS HAVE EYES is an auditory exhibition space for sound art on CJSW 90.9 fm. Every month, artists and musicians respond to a theme, making new compositions or sharing existing works. EARS HAVE EYES invites local, national, and international artists to share spatial soundscapes, auditory aesthetics, spoken word, poetry, experimental music, thematic interviews, and other recorded media, transmitted on the radio across Treaty 7 Territory – and beyond.

Waking Thanks

A warm and technicolour THANK YOU to all the artists, participants, and contributors who shared performances, videos, toboggans, mail art, installations, music, and more at The Hibernation Project 2021! Check out this blog for a full list of credits.

The 12th and final Hibernation Project has been postponed.
