All the Thank Yous!

We’ve reached the end of The Hibernation Project 2022!

Thank you to the artists and participants who joined us on this wild adventure! This year, we once again navigated the shifting waters of a global pandemic to facilitate 11 Hibernation Project events spanning digital space, tobogganing hills, radio waves, hockey rinks, community centres, and our backyard. We started our spinoff Sound Art radio program, EARS HAVE EYES (which will continue to air monthly on CJSW 90.9 fm for the rest of the year). Participating artists joined us from near and far, sharing video work, sculptures, installations, sound art, performances, drawings, ideas, and conversation. Guest themes were facilitated by rad artists and friends. Thank you to everyone who joined us, and especially the participants who shared their work!

Special Thanks to CJSW (especially Lily, Tyra, and Adam), Ryan McNally, Vicki Van Chau, The Calgary Bridge Centre, Stash (esp. Dale Meyer & Veronica Murphy), Emma Justine & Russell Hendrix, our parents, our awesome neighbours, our Zoomer pals! and all the unnamed participants – the dancers, bakers, airplane makers, viewers, listeners, quiet supporters, and anyone who helped the artists with their work. Thank you!

This project is organized by Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett in Calgary/Mohkinstsis, beginning in the yard of our rental house and expanding outward into public parks, radio waves, community centres, and other interstitial semi-public spaces. The Hibernation Project wouldn’t be possible without the help and participation of our friends. Thanks pals!
