With Elephant Artist Relief (E.A.R.) (Calgary, AB)

Elephant Artist Relief, or E.A.R., is a group of artists who have organized themselves to raise awareness surrounding the health, well being and livelihood of artists in Calgary. Current members are: Kerry Clarke, Mark Dicey, Johanna Schwartz, Leslie Sweder and Janet Turner.They plan on connecting with the arts community as well as the general public by performing, playing music and speaking, in hopes of trading ideas and information aimed at supporting their cause. Participants can acquire a patch by involving themselves in the ongoing discussion or by taking away an "impression" (elephant footprint) on which to create original works of art that will be later displayed and possibly sold as a fundraising initiative.
