What to Participate?

connecting thru grasses will continue fall 2023 as part of an exhibition at the The Illingworth Kerr Gallery in Calgary. Sign up to take part in the project this September and October.

As a participant in this project you are being asked to plant grass seeds in at least 2 different locations across the Canadian Prairies [here defined as Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba] and map their coordinates on the google map documenting the project. Instructions as to how to use the map can be found to the right on this page.

This project requires at least occasional access to the internet.

Make sure to check your spam folder for the project emails. ‘connecting thru grasses’ will always be in the subject line.

Seed packs can be picked up at IKG: packs are limited, and sign up will be accepted until they run out!
