The Leif Eiriksson Icelandic Club of Calgary gratefully acknowledges the
donations received to ensure a very successful convention.
This year’s Núna (now) festival, the second annual convergence of Icelandic and Canadian art events, looked good on paper. Here, in diary form, are the answers, day by day and event by event. Hopefully it will give those who were unable to attend the events a good idea of what went on.
The Núna (Now) festival of Icelandic and Canadian art found its purest expression in the Collage Party, a four-day event in which artists gather to make collages, or else to paint, draw, sculpt or what-have-you, without any thought of exhibition or evaluation at the end. This frees the artists up to do whatever they might like.
