Today the 5th hosted Ken Wilson, a Regnia-based writer, filmmaker and walker, who presented a talk on “Walking and Creativity” in the gallery space. He recently participated in Chicken and Wine, an informal lecture series, at Regina’s Artful Dodger arts space, where he talked about walking the Camino de Santiago in his 50th year.
Ken lectures in English and Film Studies at the University of Regina. His first play, The Interview, won the 2010 Dorothy White Prize and was produced at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, and his 2012 site-specific audio-collage, Cyclone Podwalk, was presented as part of the Spiralling Forces event in Regina. A past president of the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative, he has served as editor of the Filmpool’s Splice Magazine and has contributed site-specific film and performance text to several Saskatchewan-based arts events, including Crossfiring / Mama Wetotan, and, most recently, Windblown / Rafales.
