Low-Carbon Chemistry in the Making

dantonandheatherIn June of 2013, Heather-Lynn rediscovered her voice at the Social Change Institute, located in the Salish Sea off the coast of BC. As a professional climate change communicator, it reawakened in her the power of music as a means to foster change.

After finishing an environmental psychology degree, Danton Jay traveled Eastern Europe with his artistic lens on culture and environmental change. Driven by the desire to express his lament for humanity’s apparent disdain for itself, he expertly wrote, arranged and produced an album, which includes a musical rendition of an essay by David Suzuki.

They are releasing their first album Decades After Paris together in the summer of 2015. Their sound is funky, catchy, and sustainability themed with a climate outreach agenda. The subject matter is resonant, and so is the music.

Saturday from 4-5 pm

choirThe Choir, a non-auditioned community choir, will perform original arrangements of pop, folk and indie music.
The Choir is directed by Marc Jenkins and accompanied by Danuel Tate.

Alysha Farling

Up-cycled Fantasy Worlds

Alysha Farling is an installation artist who creates site specific miniature worlds that crawl up the wall, expand into the air and root themselves onto the ground. She will be demonstrating the process of her artwork in the Gazebo on the English Inn grounds.

Farling’s installations are inspired by moments of play that she experienced in her childhood garden …” as a kid, magic was easy to locate, but now I am finding it difficult. I am constantly trying to recreate the enchantment of that garden. When I talk about magic I am also including the dark and the strange – the tingly, the scary and the unexplainable. ”
Farling creates these worlds from found objects and recycled materials that she collects in her day to day in whatever city or space she inhabits.

Art as Profound as the Sea

When Nicholas Pearce moved to the West Coast to live on a sailboat, he worked on capturing the ever-changing ocean in his art. Since then, he has found his true passion: painting people, whose impact on the planet is at least as profound as that of the sea. He also teaches others what he has learned, and offers a class that gives women the opportunity to see their bodies as works of art.

Visit Nicholas at his booth, where will be doing free sketches of festival visitors all weekend. To learn more about his work, please visit his website.

An Eye For Beauty

Award winning photographer Karen Parsons has an eye for the beauty of the natural world that helps her capture magical images of our planet and the life it supports.
She shoots mostly during the golden hour – that magical period just after sunrise, or before sunset, when the landscape is bathed in a beautiful warm light that infuses her photographs with soft, subtle details. She waits patiently for a bird in flight, or a person’s silhouette against the setting sun, to work her magic.
In the past six years, she’s shot 100,000 photographs of people and nature. You will find Karen in her booth near Anne Hathaway’s cottage – or roaming the grounds taking candid shots of the festival, which she will post on her website and email to anyone who asks.
