"Reflections...The First Ten Years of ArtsHabitat 1". Written, Directed and Produced by Ryan J. Brown.
A video documentary, this production takes a candid look at the 'live / work' artists' residency that is ArtsHabitat 1, a project started in 1999 by the Edmonton Arts Council to promote the development of grassroots art in the capitol city's downtown core. ArtsHabitat 1 exists as the only one of its kind in Western Canada, housing a multidisciplinary community of professional media, performing and visual artists who work alongside one another in both a residential and industrious environment. Shot over a six year period from a resident's subjective viewpoint, this production focuses on the people and events that have shaped this unique institution, and the trials associated with its future - one that has been threatened by rampant citywide development and changes in affordability. These concerns have recently made the ArtsHabitat mandate a priority in a new cultural plan now underway, making this documentary undeniably timely and relevant.
