Bluebird Encounters with Julie Kirkpatrick
Inspired by the themes of Michèle Karch-Ackerman's exhibition, the Bluebird Dress Factory, the event considers how we represent the deceased and the responsibility of sharing their voices. Each of two Bluebird Encounters installments features an intimate conversation with a leading Canadian female writer who has dared to tackle this challenge in their own career as well as a performance of an excerpt from their work.
