Our 2nd annual Elemental Festival features innovative, contemporary site-specific and land-based works: installation, performance, music and writing. And it’s just in time for you to catch the salmon running: Sep 29 to Oct 2nd.

This year’s curatorial theme is ‘Walking’. Despite its typically spontaneous, occasionally reflexive, and sometimes somnambulatory nature, walking is a complex action. It can be both physical and performative; a deeply personal and a political act that claims and carves out space emotionally, politically, socially and culturally. We follow routes, sometimes newly created recreational trails, sometimes traditional trading routes or harvesting paths whose origins have been erased through colonial territorialization. Paths aren’t always human-made.

For Elemental Festival, we have invited works that propose to examine a complex range of socio-cultural, and geo-political paths; that consider the legacy of walking with a particular focus on walking in the context of our specific rural and ecologically sensitive site.
