Registration form: Keno Registration Form 2018.docx
Keno Community Club presents eight professional artists will spend one week in Keno City creating new works as part of their Artist-in-Residency as well as facilitating workshops and providing one-on-one consultations with participants.
Each evening the AiR’s will collaborate with the registered participants to showcase visual and performance music / art. These occasions will take place at historical venues in Keno City as well as at campfires.
The result is a full week of creativity, mentorship, performance, and experimentation for registered participants and the Artists-in-Residence. There will also be time to sleep, hike, explore, share, and relax.
All participants are expected to be self-aware, to be respectful to others’ space, and be independent and responsible for their own safety, shelter and meals. This is an opportunity for adults to have sacred time and space in their lives, away from the fast lane.
Absolute beginners as well as established artists of all genders are welcome to join in the fun.
All supplies for workshops will be provided but bring your own favourite supplies for your own creation time.
Things to bring: laptop, personal recording device, digital camera or other, your favourite paintbrushes, pens, HB pencils, utility knife, ruler, cutting board, and extra paint supplies if you intend on creating added paintings or works. There will be a few supplies for sale in Keno at the Corp and Ryan building headquarters. Also bring your own guitar and any other musical instruments you intend to play during your time in Keno. If you do not have a guitar, please get in touch and we will see if we can find you one to rent or borrow.
