Branscombe House Artist Residency
Call For Submissions: What We Can't Say in English
Do you speak a language other than English? Branscombe House artist-in-residence Lou Sheppard is looking for words from other languages that have no English equivalent. If you speak a language other than English and have a word you can’t find a translation into English for please contact Lou at email@example.com.
Over the next few months the artist will gather these words, their attempted translations and the contributor’s names, and create a podcast and poster series for the City of Richmond.

About the Branscombe House Artist Residency
Branscombe House is located at 4900 Steveston Highway and is one of the earliest settler homes built in the area; as such it is significant for its historical association to Steveston and for reflecting the pattern of commercial and related residential development that occurred in Steveston’s early history.
