About

Rocking and rolling through December 2016 to July 2017, artists Lisa g Nielsen & Rene Cherrie will fuse sound and image exploring the exciting history of Kerrisdale Arena. Community members will be invited to collaborate with stories, vision, music, art and more that will culminate in an immersive video and sound installation within the Arena itself. 

The project outcome is threefold: 
1. Collect community stories and share them all on this blog (no story too small!) in the form of  text, photography and simple video vignettes (the artists are calling them video 'sketches').

2. Create an installation in the foyer of the arena that will include a cozy place to sit, images on the walls and columns and a television where the experimental documentary will play.

3. Create a two-channel immersive installation screening in the Kerrisdale Arena itself on
