One more awesome event in the festival:

5 or 6: fiveorsixfestival@gmail.com

Five or Six will take place on Saturday May 25th, from 5-7pm (time subject to change). Inspired by the Hive Events, Five or Six will be a multi-disciplinary arts extravaganza unlike any other. There will be art installed and performances happening in and around The Cultch all themed around the theme of "the senses". Audience members will be invited to experience the event on their own terms, choosing which areas of the site to explore, and in what order.

We are looking for artists from all genres of media to create a work of art that plays on one or more of these senses or emphasizes the loss of a sense. The art will be displayed or performed over the course of the 2 hour event. Performance art should have a running time of less than 25 minutes.

For more information about any of this, please contact Corbin Murdoch, Youth Program Manager:
