May Arts Sampler: Decolonizing with Collaborative Art, Wrestling for a Cause & Third Time's a Charm

This week on the Curator, we’re bringing you all things new, community-based and out of the box with three interview segments.

First up is artist and researcher Carleigh Millburn, who’s heading up a new collaborative art project Making Sense of Decolonization with Artificial Intelligence, Digital and Conventional Art Creation at the Kingston School of Art, running from May 15-30th. We chat about this unique project and how to get involved with it all summer long.

Next up, CFRC Program Manager and event organizer Jesse Bell stops by to chat about a new performance medium to the curator: professional wrestling, ahead of the Stepping Up: A Show for Mom charity event hitting Kingston at the Cataraqui Arena on May 25th. A new medium to the Curator, Lauren and Jesse explore the performance and community aspects of what goes in to an event like this.

Last up, CFRC Broadcast Journalist Christena Lawrie sat down with the secondary division winners of Juvenis Festival’s battle of the bands this past Saturday, Third Time’s a Charm, plus their debut single, “Fading Innocence”.

We have all that, plus your headlines and live music calendar for the week, only on CFRC 101.9fm and on our CFRC podcast feed. Be sure to tune in live on Thursdays at 2pm all summer for the latest and greatest of Kingston’s arts scene. As always, thank you so much for listening.

**CORRECTION added May 16th: the upcoming reception at the Kingston School of Art for Making Sense of Decolonization, given as June 19th, is in fact on May 19th.

This episode featured “Fading Innocence” by Third Time’s a Charm, releasing officially on May 18th.

Our theme music is “Mathematics Monument and The Guide to Making Friends” by Julia Lynn Sepúlveda, found here: “Mathematics Monument and the Guide to Making Friends” by Julia Lynn Sepúlveda on Soundcloud
