Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Inspiring night at Not Sent Letters with admirable contributions.  Especially enjoyed interacting with Charlene Vickers exhibit Vagabond Vestige (or Vestige Vagabond). Highlights including dusting arms with her fringy spoons, delighting in Maria’s stuffed beads that were close to bead boxing gloves … but the yellow walkman and “being an effective Ojibwe eavesdropper tape: lesson 15, The Weather, sentence two “he needs an enema” spawned a gaggle and giggle from the curious once we discovered it.

There was an interesting array of artists/writers and performers working with media, text, music, film, objects: a welcome relief from the sniffy “peacocking” that can prevail at Vancouver-dry art events, where the flag poles have no give in them.
