Leigh Anne Parry is currently the Chair of Winnipeg Trails Association and an artist and collaborator with a degree in theatre that focused on directing. Leigh Anne’s work is almost always intersectoral, multidisciplinary and collaborative. Her works has evolved into a prolonged response to the built environments into which we find ourselves emerging. She has the opportunity to leave a direct imprint on both the landscape and the objects in it through, for example, The Plain Bicycle project (a culture bomb of Dutch bicycles) or the Landless Farmers Collective (a major vegetable farm and landscaping in a prominent urban greenspace). Her work can also be ephemeral, esoteric and conceptual, as evidence by the From the Seat of A Canoe groupe performance/installation that drew attention to riverine environments in the city. Her most recent project was A Lingering Darkness a series of installations curated for Cluster Festival that focused on what we lose when we lose the night sky. As both an artist and activist, she is increasingly keen to respond to a world created by colonizers for a car economy that has left barriers to creating plausible and desirable futures for the existence of life on this planet. Leigh Anne is a resident of Winnipeg, raised just outside the city limits but her ancestors came to the east coast of turtle island in the mid-1800s from Great Britain. She is also Executive Director Young Lungs Dance Exchange an artist-run dance organization. She is a key organizer of ModeShift and will be appearing as a facilitator.
