rEvolver Festival, Rendezvous with Madness Festival
Szepty/Whispers: Dialogue is a digital experience using a web app and QR codes. Encounter “Whispers” (audio and text contributions from various artists) as you wander in-between different sites on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories (in so-called downtown Vancouver). Delve into a fragmented, non-linear journey that explores the relationship between mental health, language, and lineage. Listen, read, contribute, and join the conversation.
