Dear XXXX,


Last year you attended Carrie Jenkins’s workshop on the metaphysics of love. We’re happy to say we’re doing it again, and invite you to rejoin us this year.

During the day we have a one-day interdisciplinary workshop of talks, readings, and discussion. Presenting will be Andrea Iacona, Vicki Larson, Carrie Jenkins, and Jesse Wolfe. You can find the schedule of talks on the workshop’s webpage here, in addition to more information about the speakers.

We would like to invite you to a day and evening of philosophy, art, and love.

We are pleased to present poet Ray Briggs, filmmaker Swoon, and photo artist Angela Fama. We will present the first screening of Ray and Swoon’s collaborative videopoems Fairytale Romance and Fear of Monsters, followed by a screening Angela Fama’s major work What is Love. For What is Love, Angela travelled across Canada and the US documenting the variety of people’s experiences of love. A live Q&A will follow this screening.

For over three years now, Carrie’s project has been part of an ongoing conversation about love taking place in and around Vancouver and the Pacific North West. Please join us and be part of the continuing conversation about what love is and what it could be.
