!EVENT! – June 28, HFS ARTIST TALK Closing BBQ Potluck & Goodbye Party

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! What an adventure this has been!  On Tuesday June 28 join us for the HFS Artist Talk and closing party.  Hammock Residency founder Heidi Nagtegaal will moderate a discussion with artist and Hammock Free School facilitator Golboo Amani as well as the many collaborating artists of the Hammock Free School project.

As some of you may also know, Golboo and her partner David are moving to Toronto in just a few days.  Come and join us in sending them off with a BANG!  Bring some delicious and healthy snacks to share, or something to throw on the BBQ.


On Tuesday 28 June, from 6pm – 10pm Heidi Nagtegaal will be moderating an artist talk with HFS facilitator Golboo Amani at the Hammock Residency 1923 Graveley Street


Heidi Nagtegaal – Artist, Hammock Residency, Founder http://www.heidi-nagtegaal.com/

Heidi Nagtegaal is an artist, writer and facilitator living in Vancouver, BC. After receiving her BFA from ECUAD in 2005, Nagtegaal has gone on to found local arts initiatives such as the Hammock Residency and Headbands and Bracelets, parallel to her own practice.

Basing her work on emergent natures, she uses an aesthetic of emergency, DIY, utilizing available materials to make “something out of nothing”. Challenging the notions of “something” and “nothing,” she engages a fluidity of structures, transformation, personal chemistry and connection to create alchemic art. Sculptures, intervention, performance, installation, and activation are key elements in her relational social practice, creating both an object, and the ephemeral.

G. Amani – Artist, Hammock Free School, Facilitator   http://golbooamani.blogspot.com/

Golboo Amani, a graduate of ECUAD, is an interdisciplinary artist working with photography, installation, and performance. With a focus on process and research, Golboo’s practice fits within the discourse of knowledge production and distribution, utilizing the Internet and search engine results to highlight ways in which language and gestures become dominant tools of informing and imagining the world.

Hari Malagayo Alluri

Hari Malagayo Alluri immigrated to South Vancouver, Musquiem Territory with his family at the age of 12. His experiences led him to community organizing, which brought him back to the love of writing he wasn’t able to bring with him, and moved his work into arts-based facilitation and mentorship. Interested in the inherently collaborative craft of supporting community storytelling voices, he has spent the last few years facilitating workshops focusing on diverse themes with multiple populations and group dynamics, supporting the creation of successful projects and media. A published writer, lyricist for Los Migrantes, Asian Arts Freedom School coordinator, member of No One is Illegal and Press Release poetry collective, and Leo-award nominee for his work with The Colouring Book: Digital Stories by Artists of Colour, Hari is an intuitive and experienced group facilitator whose practice is grounded in pasalubong – gifts from the Journey.

Loving the collaborative process, Hailey has appeared alongside a puppeteer, an opera singer and many clowns in the In the House Festival as part of the embodiment of Naomi Steinberg’s storytelling.  In the fall of 2011, Hailey will be performing in Project CPR: Choreographic Process and Research with Claire French.  She has experience teaching people that are new to the vocabulary of movement, and loves the intuitive discoveries that take place when the moving body is heard.  With contagious passion, she shares her belief that the oldest language in the world provides great opportunities for bridging gaps in society, beginning with a greater understanding of the many layers of the self.  Movement is a powerful healer, providing self-knowledge and humor.

I am always looking to learn more DIY skills, and like to learn and teach best through experience.

Monique Levesque – Guest Artist, Open Studio: Group Cook Off

Raised in a white washed suburb of Calgary and currently living in Vancouver, I reflect on my time spent in cul-de-sacs of the early part of my life, surrounded by stucco. A recent Graduate of Emily Carr University, my work is based on the remnants of the performance of everyday life, an examination of the production of subjectivity, through the production of community. Creating a portrait of a group of people where commodity, class and conformity serve as modes of elitism, and escapism.
