Magic Trout Imaginarium



Open Houses- the last Saturday of every month in 2015 and 2016, 11-2pm.

About the Imaginarium: Through a series of workshops, scavenger hunts and activities, artists Emily Smith, Francoise Thibault and Zee Kesler engage the public in creative exercises designed to collect stories, document history and build playful connections between neighbours of all ages and cultures. In our workshops, we explore art making as a means of self expression in order to create a new understanding and appreciation of Trout Lake’s natural ecology, environment and neighbourhood as a place of wonder and inspiration.
