Dustin Harvey and Michael Lake will co-host a meeting event called First Fridays // First Album on September 7.
Produced by XOST, First Fridays // First Album is part of the 2018 Halifax Fringe Festival.
The event will begin with curated stories about a first record purchase, in whatever form that took (anywhere from an 8-track tape to iTunes).
The audience is then encouraged to share their own stories, with a time limit of five minutes or less. Each story will be accompanied by the selected piece of music. A Q&A will follow the story session.
Dustin is a Talent Trust scholarship recipient who is a member of ArtsHalifax, an advisory committee to the City of Halifax advocating the creation of an arms-length funding organization. He’s also on the national advisory board of Canadian Theatre Review, and board member of Nova Scotia’s Masterworks Art Award.
In 2017 he was part of a national cohort at the Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity called New Fundamentals: Leadership For the Creative Ecology.
Dustin is project curator of Secret Theatre (xosecret.org), which focuses on immersive and responsive installations designed to put the audience at the heart of the experience.
