Kathryn produces Chautauqua’s which bring together fiercely talented but often quiet artists to share their music and art in public spaces. An element of giving back to community,either with fundraising or awareness raising, is part of each blue dirt girl event.
Kathryn produced a multi disciplinary show, Little Conversations: an evening of music and words, April 2016 at The Cultch in East Vancouver. The audience had an opportunity to listen in on the conversations between three fiercely talented artists. The collaborative event featured the music of blue dirt girl, with Sophie Yendole the poet behind Thinking Ship weaving her words between songs, while Sob Story Podcasts collected conversations with the audience in the Founder’s Lounge.
