visual talk + workshop + planting
Tuesday, June 2, 6pm - 8pm.

This June, Sprout Out Loud! returns to celebrate the Strawberry Moon and International Year of the Soils, facilitated by Emily Rose Michaud.

Join us for the beginning of the planting season at Drawn & Quarterly for a visual talk and workshop on land-based art that highlights soil in poetic terms. The evening will end with a hands-on planting outside.

The visual talk will highlight the nature of engagement as it pertains to land use and participatory democracy while re-affirming the need for the poetic when it comes to art and action. Considering our role as cultural pollinators at local and international levels, simple gestures are highlighted: ones which are inclusive, concrete, creative, inter-generational and life-affirming. When it comes to the built and natural spaces that compose our lives, this presentation will invigorate a radical re-imagining of our cities and villages and how we may (re)shape them, as guided by the dirt beneath our feet.

COST (Suggested donation): $10 to cover artist’s time and travel.

Please note​: Sprout Out Loud 'zines will be available for purchase. There will be an informal seed exchange, so BYOS!

SPROUT OUT LOUD! is a project led by artist/educator Emily Rose Michaud. Learn about her land art projects, installations, academic and community outreach, classes and workshops at: Emily works at the crossroads of community organization, ecology, civic participation and land use. Her work encompasses land-based art, installation, drawing, writing, performance, and intervention. In recent years, her experimental, participatory, and socially driven approach has resulted in a series of performances incorporating living ‘sproutfits’, a guerilla gardener’s ensemble, an electronic book designed to be reproduced and remixed by others, and the Roerich Garden Project, a three-year land art project in a post-industrial railyard turned urban meadow.
