From the minds and hearts of Marilyn Milavsky and Nicole Tritter comes RiverFestYYC! https://potenttalks.ca/riverfestyyc/What is RiverFestYYC? RiverFestYYC is a “festival-in-the-making” celebrating the Rivers that run through Calgary. The 2022 version comes in the form of a River walk beginning at the Confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers continuing across the George C. King pedestrian bridge to St Patrick’s Island and following the pathway East along the Bow to Confluence Plaza (near the CPA Calgary Zoo – West parking lot). Map of Riverwalk and Installations There are 5 stops along the way where participants will encounter RiverFestYYC sandwich board signs. Each of these stops has a descriptive sign with QR codes that can be scanned to discover stories, artwork, information and a map. The stories and artwork created for this River walk are “site specific”, meaning each artist was inspired in some way by their stop location. This is an artistic experiment and a pilot for a future community-based Rivers Festival currently being explored and developed. If you can’t make it to the rivers you can listen and watch the five installations online at this link Riverfestyyc
