DISPERSED: it's not easy being green
Language as a Virus: Queer Isolation Stories — by Bobbi Kozinuk
July 24- August 13
Take a walk on this sound-art installation, featuring publicly broadcast audio recordings around False Creek.
“Language as a Virus” asks us who we are, and how can we move towards a better future? Stories become soundscapes that are broadcast on low power transmitters and QR codes located at various hubs along the water’s edge. Listen in on your FM radio or QR-enabled phone. Add to the stories via the Isolation Website.

BALLOONS THAT FLAME POETRY EXHIBITION
Opens May 1, online
Works by youth from Abundance in Poetry and Flaming Balloon workshops, and Truthfully with Gen Z – A Roundhouse Youth Podcast.
As part of BC Youth Week, youth that have worked with Roundhouse Poet-in-Residence Angelic Poversky will showcase all of their creations in a multimedia collaborative poetry exhibition.
“Carrying the sounds of hundreds of ancestor poets, learning from pages, words, and the digging into a community of cycle disruptors, emancipators, visionaries – pen carriers desperate to free out the truth, a group of young poets began nurturing their craft over Webex.”
