A summattion of some thoughts and ideas, and some of the conversations I had with artist, cultural workers and cultural instigators during my month long residency in the city of Welland in Winter 2019.

Colin Nun’s work at the Dennis Tourbin straddles language and mark making, imagery and words, in a way that shows that neither is ever separate of the other.
Tony Calzetta and Gabrielle de Montmollin have turned a space in downtown Welland into a combined studio, gallery and living space, and I visited them to see their artwork and their role in shifting the community to one where culture is more prevalent.
