Art and Wellness

Virtual Art Hive @Agnes

Online, Thursdays 6 May–24 June, 4–5:30 pm (ET)

Art Hive is a creative community that draws upon the innately therapeutic nature of artmaking. Make time for yourself to recharge and get inspired! Art Hive invites you to experiment and play as you explore the artistic process. Part of Agnes’s Wellness Program, this weekly program is free and projects are designed to use materials you already have on hand. All levels of artistic experience are welcome. Sign up for one week or all of them!

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Birks Family Foundation.

Virtual Art Hive @Agnes, winter 2021

Digital Agnes

Vibe Check, a radio art project by Neven Lochhead

Bi-weekly Wednesdays, 21 April–2 June, 4:30–5 pm on CFRC 101.9 FM

In Episode 1 of Vibe Check, a gently building soundscape introduces listeners to Neven Lochhead’s process of ‘sonic scaffolding’ and its effects. An interview with the artist about his solo exhibition From the vibe out becomes a base for auditory renovation, as the approaches driving the two-channel video installation gradually adjust to CFRC Radio’s immersive stereo habitat.

Vibe Check is available on Digital Agnes  following the live broadcast.
