Tarin Dehod & Priscilla Settee--Book ReadingWednesday Nov 13 2019 7:00 pm, Saskatoon, Travel Alcove
Locals Only was published as part of a project by the same name that took place between April 2017 and June 2019. Developed by Justin Langlois, curated by Tarin Dehod (AKA artist-run), organized with Yvonne Hanson (CHEP Good Food Inc.), Locals Only operated as an Elder-guided, artist-designed, and youth-coordinated initiative focused on intercultural and intergenerational dialogues around traditional knowledge, food, hospitality, and community development in Saskatoon’s core neighbourhoods.
The Locals Only publication features contributions that enact and expand upon the core elements of the project. From recipes to plays, poems to illustrations, essays to interviews, local histories to national reflections, artist projects to how-to’s on foraging and preserving food; this publication serves as a record of the activity from Locals Only and a set of propositions for what could come next.
Tarin Dehod will introduce the publication followed by a reading with one of the contributors, Dr. Priscilla Settee, and a Q&A session.
Tarin Dehod is a curator and arts administrator, living and working on Treaty 6 Territory and the Homeland of the Metis in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Since 2014 Tarin has served as the Executive Director of AKA, a non-profit artist-run centre funding artistic research, creation and presentation.
