ASL interpreted shows at Vines Art Festival
Vines Art Festival Promo Script
“Hello, my name is Ladan Sahraei.
I want to let you know about some ASL interpreted events at the upcoming Vines Art Festival 2018. The festival is a free public event that creates platforms for local artists and performers to create with and on the land, steering their creative impulses toward work that focuses on the environment. They stage work in pedestrian, open-air settings so audiences will happen upon public art, finding delight in the unexpected beauty and power of the super-natural Coast Salish Territory.”
