Once again, the blur of travel and activity. We're back from Cape Town and into the fray of multiple tasks. Most pressing is the "Situating Reconciliation" project a large group of us is trying to pull together. It will involve more than 40, probably much more when it comes down to the actual project, artists and academics and groups and associations from Canada, South Africa, Northern Ireland, and Australia, working on artistic responses to the complicated terrain of 'reconciliation.' The letter of intent for this project is due in a few weeks, and now's the time when many hands make light work, so they say, and we hope it all culminates in a nod toward doing the full application for this Major Collaborative Research Initiative supported through SSHRC. Alongside (and with the same unfortunate deadline of month's end!) is the culmination of another SSHRC project, this one a research-creation grant that sees my ms, *A Little Distillery in Nowgong* transmogrifying into an installation at Centre-A in Vancouver. The novel itself will be released later this year by Arsenal Pulp Press in Vancouver. So the next few weeks will involve much video and photo production up at CiCAC (now that the Coquihalla is open post-mudslide) and a hefty amount of editing toward all these projects. Send warm vibes from whatever part of the globe you inhabit -- it's the backstretch, the 11th hour, and we need the smoothest of trajectories!
