Taking Outside Art Outside... Poetry Summer Camp Is Here!

Opening Night Welcome Performance and Kick Off
7pm at the HIVE
Welcoming performance with Montreal poet Ian Ferrier and local performers: Andreas Kahre, Alex Varty, Jill Talbot, P.C. Vandall, and Hilary Peach, and special guests.
Ian Ferrier's trademark is a transporting blend of whispered and spoken word and electric guitar. His performances are a film for the interior of your mind, some images engraved, others appearing at the edge of consciousness--all riding on a live soundtrack of multiple guitars and sounds.
Whatever Floats Your Boat: Poetry Kayak Flotilla!
Join the PGS team for a three-hour paddle and poetry reading on Carlos Island with Gabriola’s kayak outfitter and guide, Hilary Masson. Cost of rental is $25. If you have your own boat, it’s free! Reserve your kayak ahead by emailing hpeach@mac.com
