We had a packed room for our final Long Table of the year with compelling talks from poet Darrell Epp and artist Calla Churchward. Darrell shared his thoughts on art and poetry in particular, and he read some of his poems. Calla told the story of what led to her “white whale” art project on McMaster University campus as well as stories of her process and what happened during the project. Both artists invited us to consider the relationship between art, attention, and particular places.

Simon Orpana presented the broadsheet he assembled with Matt McInnes, featuring the work of Calla, Darrell, and David Collier.
