Where? Here.
Placing rural art practices on the map in Pictou County

In June 2012 the W(here) Festival began and ended on its feet, exploring ideas of place, art, and community. Taking place in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, local and visiting artists  led audiences in a series of “field trips” engaging participants in an collaborative way. In addition, the festival  featured an exciting evening of local artist talks, a special interactive discussion about creative Pictou County, a public launch of an online video project and music by Al Tuck. All events were free and family friendly.

New terrain, new histories, and new possibilities were considered throughout the W(here) Festival and it is our hope that parts of this project will be continued by the residents and artists of Pictou County.  Our festival headquarters was located at 13 Water Street in Pictou thoughout the month of June 2012.
