Here is even more stuff I am working on that is distracting me from my regular arts administration activies. Well, maybe its just adding to the pile of admin. Helping to make a celebratory party is more fun than doing my final budget reports. The ironic part of this is that I will be in Charlottetown so will miss the party.......sigh. I'll be trying to catch the online content anyway. Video Pool Media Arts Centre presents

PLUS! reinvent the golden age of radio at Video Pool’s live sound buffet - bring your own sounds, share online!
Then, try your luck at the arcane arcade featuring well-loved video game systems from bygone eras, such as Atari, Nintendo and PS1. Or bid on prizes at the silent auction. Prizes for the best costume reflecting this year’s Art’s Birthday theme... 100 years of broadcast radio.
Then we'll party like it's 1907 with DJ Hunnicutt!
On Christmas Day 1906, Reginald Aubrey Fessenden transmitted music and voice across the Atlantic in the first wireless radio broadcast in history. Now Art’s Birthday partners from Antwerp, Prague, Vancouver, Montreal, Winnipeg and more continue the tradition of interactive, international art networking.
Live radio broadcasts on CKUW 95.9 FM starting at 8PM
