[In a quiet voice.] "Meet me in silence where Esplanade meets Port Way"
Participants will meet at the intersection of Esplanade and Port Way in South Nanaimo.
As part of both Landfall and Departure: Prologue and Broadcast Archipelago, join artist Elisa Ferrari for a sound walk that takes us outside of the gallery and into the urban environment to explore the unique acoustic ecologies of the Nanaimo Harbourfront and shipping wharf. Participants will map out the distinct audio landscape of this area through encounters with ambient and pre-recorded sounds.

Join us to celebrate the launch of Nanaimo Art Gallery's first major publication Black Diamond Dust. The event will feature readings by local historian Lynne Bowen, curator and co-editor Jesse Birch, and Vancouver-based artist and writer Elisa Ferrari, who will share the work of the late Nanaimo poet, Peter Culley. There will also be a reception with beverages, book signings, and an opportunity to see our current exhibition Landfall and Departure: Prologue.
