trout lake community centre artist residency

In partnership with  Magic Trout Imaginarium Emily Smith, Zee Kesler and Francoise Thibault  created workshops, art and events in a tiny house classroom built by a community of makers. As a curiosity cabinet with a modern twist, they explored art making as a means of self-expression to create a new understanding and appreciation of Trout Lake's natural ecology, environment and neighbourhood as a place of wonder and inspiration.
