Branscombe House Artist Residency
Rachel Rozanski's Branscombe House Artist Residency Launch
Thu, Feb 11, 7:00-8:30pm
Online via Zoom
The community is invited to meet Rachel Rozanski, the sixth annual Branscombe House Artist-in-Residence at this event. Rachel will describe her practice and plans for her upcoming residency, which includes exploring the islands of Richmond by water. She will be looking at how these islands have evolved after being reshaped many times over, and the unique ecosystems that now exist on them. Rachel’s praxis often focuses on land change, including recent projects documenting permafrost degradation in the Arctic using video, drawing and contact imaging. The artist-in-residence is seeking collaboration from community members that have personal connections or knowledge of local island geographies. The virtual talk will be followed by a questions and answers session. RSVP in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.About Rachel

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.
The Branscombe House Artist-in-Residence is selected annually via an Open Call.
