Rural Arts Activism

PRESENTED ON SEP 24, 2016
IN HALIFAX @ VOL 21

"These days, arts and artists are mostly urban, this is not news, but whenever things are brought from the wilderness to the country, to the city, they are brought to make a point."

In "Rural Arts Activism" from PechaKucha Night Halifax Vol. 21, Associate Professor at NSCAD University Karin Cope presents the many creative opportunities in Halifax to explore the arts to enhance the lives of the members of her rural community. 

Karen is a poet, sailor, photographer, videographer, writer, activist, and blogger. Her publications include scholarly works (Passionate Collaborations: Learning to Live with Gertrude Stein,) popular histories (Casting a Legend: The Story of the Lunenburg Foundry), poetry (What we’re doing to stay afloat), short stories, and substantial blogs. A founding member of Art and Activism at NSCAD, Cope is also a community activist on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia.

In "Dakota Rural Action" from PechaKucha Sioux Falls Vol.19, SD Tony Helland's love of the state and region runs deep. He grew up loving the outdoors, bicycling, and creating and performing music. Over the past two years Tony has expanded his interests toward the environment, sustainable energy, and civic engagement. These interests were brought to the fore after joining with Dakota Rural Action. Since then he has been fortunate to travel all across region, meeting new friends and learning the pressing issues they face. Tony’s current areas of engagement include water quality, oil and gas infrastructure, and the state legislature.
