Nature of the Project Reach
Our project is a part of the Cathedral Arts Village Festival, an annual arts festival in Regina. People from all over the city enjoy the arts activities put on by the festival, including our Landforms dance and demo project. We will be holding the performance and demo during the CVAF kick off picnic, giving families and visitors a chance to see a dance performance in an art gallery as well as an inside look into creating an art piece they may not normally see.
With this project, we will introduce viewers to interacting with art through dance, and will show visitors the process behind creating the art works in the gallery.
