6 Foot Festival

The Six Foot Initiative began in the garden in the summer of 2009 with a project called Thrive – A Community Collaboration in the Gardens. Artists Elisha Sidlar and Jessica Wilde Peltier worked with a group of young women to establish a garden and creatively explore their relationship to nourishment. The group included Sabrina Mishibinijima, Courtenay Peltier, Chenya Brissard, Taashiina Brissard, and Nani Bell.

A great big thank-you to everyone who came out to The 6 Foot Festival 2012; Land Art Food where our theme was Starting From Seed! This festival exhibits all the work created in the previous year for The 6 Foot Project which invites participants to identify a 6’ x 6’ x 6’ plot and make art from, on or inspired by that plot. The project is open to all nations, disciplines, ages and occupations. In addition, the festival serves as a convergence point for discussion and exploration of land use, food security, and artistic practice. In 2012 we celebrated the third consecutive year of the festival!
