Open Studio is a monthly program for young visitors and families inspired by contemporary art practices and CAG’s current exhibitions. In October, we invite you to join us for a sound-making workshop led by artist Edzi'u.

Inspired by CAG’s current exhibitions Christine Sun Kim: Oh Me Oh My and Tanya Lukin Linklater: My mind is with the weather, Edzi’u will guide participants through a sound walk. Using their environment and voices, participants will explore accessible recording techniques, such as how to listen and gauge a sound for recording, how to capture what you hear, and visual techniques for how close to record a sound. Attendees are asked to bring a cell phone with the capability to record sound to the workshop. Refreshments will be provided.

A note on access: a portion of the workshop will take place outside and requires participants to make their way around city sidewalks and parks. If you have any accessibility needs, please do not hesitate to contact us at


Registration for this event is free, but limited. RSVP to secure your place here.

ASL interpretation

ASL interpretation is available on request. Requests can be accommodated up to 5 days in advance. Please contact to book or for more information.


Step into the lush and heart-wrenching sounds of Edzi'u, an innovative sound and performance artist who paints stories of the past, present and future with textures, community voices and words, and her ethereal voice. Being rich in culture, full of passion and spirit, the power behind their use of sound goes deep within the listener, inspiring them to be bold and genuine, while living fully within their hearts. Edzi'u has a style and sound like no other, a quiet icon in the landscape of Indigenous music on Turtle Island.
