Queer Storytelling through Stop-Motion Animation with Kerri Flannigan
Friday, March 16
3:30 to 5:00 pm
Ages 14+, FREE
Saturday, March 17
1:00 to 4:00pm
Ages 14+, FREE
Join us in our studios with Victoria-based artist Kerri Flannigan for a Queer Storytelling through Stop-Motion Animation workshop.
Participants in this two-part workshop will explore using short stop-motion animation as a way of sharing personal experiences from queer perspectives.
On Friday, March 16, participants will learn about different ways of telling stories through art and engage in activities that explore themes of how our intersectional identities (such as race, age, gender and sexuality) impact how we experience different places.
Local musician and personality Henry Small will emcee. Many know Henry as a performer, radio DJ and producer of Music in the Park; as the Kamloops Arts Council celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018, Henry will speak about his involvement with the KAC over the years.
In our next concert, we present an exciting program of dance music from Italy, Germany, and the United States.
The concert begins with infectious music by the Italian film composer Nino Rota, with a suite of dances from his score to the 1963 film The Leopard, then moves to the folk-based music of Saturday Night Waltz from American composer Aaron Copland’s music for the ballet Rodeo.
Staying with Copland, the KSO welcomes Guest Artist and Kamloops native, Baritone Scott Brooks to the stage, to perform Old American Songs.
