Think Like an Animal! Participatory Environmental Art Project

Saturday, July 19, 6 – 8:30 pmUsing GPS tracking systems, participants will go on a self-guided interpretive hike and become part of a larger investigation into the behaviour of our favourite wild animals by “becoming” one and tracking their movements. The results will be printed out onto paper and included in a larger final art piece. This workshop is designed for both artists and non-artists of any level and no experience is necessary. Location TBA. Register online at or call 250-275-1525.

Caetani would just like to get a reading of possible numbers to expect, there is no charge for this project.
