Where Edmonton Community Artists Network Society (WECAN): Black Friday – Metamorphosis (2020 Project Accelerator Grant Amount: $7,000)
On July 31, 1987, a tornado tore through Edmonton. It was the largest of seven tornadoes that hit Alberta that day. A collaboration between Groove Soldier Productions and WECAN chronicles the actions of a group of artists during this difficult time in Edmonton’s history, ultimately leading to their occupancy of Harcourt House. The resulting film recognizes this display of community spirit through a unique cultural initiative and provides future generations with a glimpse into their past.
