Council of Community Conveyors

Presented in partnership with The Theatre Centre.

By bringing together elements of performance, participation, and civic engagement, Council of Community Conveyors seeks to map communities by collecting and passing messages from one neighbour to another. Not unlike census takers (we’ve got clipboards, name tags, and a serious looking form to fill out), members of the Council arrive in a neighbourhood and begin knocking on doors with the intention of registering what one neighbour has to say to the next. The Council invites festival-goers to become temporary members by participating in a two-hour version of this playful but politically engaged project, which attempts to establish dialogue within a community.
