This fall I will be programming a series entitled “From Skin to Steel and Beyond” as a part of the Toronto Arts Council’s Animating Historical Sites strategic initiative.
From Skin to Steel and Beyond is a steelpan focused project engaging community through workshops, creation and live performance. Each element of the project explores aspects of how natural environments have impacted the development of the steelpan and how the instrument and its creators and the descendants of its creator have responded by impacting our cultural and social environments.
The project will culminate with a free performance at the Evergreen Brick Works on Friday November 29, 2019. Stay tuned for more details and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your school or community organization would like to participate in our project workshops at EBW or at your own site.
