VIVO Media Arts Centre
2625 Kaslo Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V5M 3G9
A WalkingLab research-creation event in collaboration with Vivo Media Arts Centre and Carmen Papalia.

White Cane Amplified is Carmen Papalia's improvised proccess in which he replaces his white mobility cane with a megaphone as he navigates an unfamiliar route in the city.
White Cane Amplified is one in a series of related projects in which the artist temporarily adopts a system for his mobility in an effort to reclaim a sense of agency while distancing himself from institutional support servuces. A demonstration, primarily, of failure, White Cane Amplified depicts Papalia performing the social function of the white cane, speaking into a megaphone as he stumbles to find the words to communicat his nuanced and emergent needs.

Event is free.
