From adversity, art.
With Folk on the Rocks barreling toward Yellowknife, organizers announced June 24 that they intend to present a body of new work created by visiting artists while isolated together in a concert in Somba K’e Park called Emerging Wildly.
“Festival artists Cartel Madras, Partner, and Celeigh Cardinal will isolate together in a Yellowknife house where they will live and create new work taking inspiration from their quarantine experiences, Yellowknife, and each other,” a Thursday news release read.
The free, all-ages concert is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. July 13.
Folk on the Rocks is set to take place July 16 to 18.
