In an article that came out in EQ (Equity Quarterly) yesterday, it says, “Dawson worries it “feels almost like [Canada’s] a bit behind in terms of where we’re moving with [social media],” and not just with blockbuster projects like Such Tweet Sorrow. She has watched shows live-streamed from Texas, Germany and Australia, but not from her own backyard.”
As of today, that information is no longer true.
Tonight at 7pm PST I am stage managing Vancouver’s contribution to the series of readings of Homegrown in support of Summerworks, and it’s going to be live streamed.
There are a lot of great article that can tell you about why these readings are happening (my favourite is J. Kelly Nestruck’s Globe and Mail article).
I’m thrilled to be a part of it for all of those reasons. But I’m also excited that we are embracing technology and sharing our art with the world at large. To watch our reading tonight, click on over to http://www.ustream.tv/chan?nel/wrecking-ball-vancouve?r
