Canadian Sunflowers - A Daughter’s Story with guest Anne Sadelain #005

Canadian Sunflowers - A Daughter’s Story with guest Anne Sadelain #005

February 24, 2021

Michelle Loughery spends time with Anne Sadelain of Edmonton, Alberta on AR:T ROUTE Radio. At 16, Anne Sadelain’s father lied about his age to get into Canada. Five years later, in 1915, he was picked up by police in Vancouver and brought to an internment camp in Morrissey, B.C.  Anne is one of the children of the camp survivors and her father; Vasyl (William) Doskoch was a Morrissey internee.

Anne speaks about her father's harsh treatment and what an impact it had on the family to have their father imprisoned in such an unjust fashion. She explains also that Vasyl was eventually moved to a camp at Kapuskasing in Northern Ontario when Morrissey was finally shut down. There he was forced to remain in what only can be described as deliberate post-war slave labour until he was finally released in 1920, 1-2 years after war's end.

Sadelain said, “My father committed no crime and posed no threat to the country. Instead, he was locked up because he was Ukrainian.”

About Canada's first national internment operations.  "During Canada's first national internment operations of 1914 to 1920 thousands of men, women and children were branded as "enemy aliens." Many were imprisoned. Stripped of what little wealth they had, forced to do heavy labour in Canada's hinterlands, they were also disenfranchised and subjected to other state sanctioned censures not because of anything they had done but only because of where they had come from, who they were."

Quoted from “www.internmentcanada.ca”

Canadian War Museum - The Internment of Ukrainian Canadians. At the outset of war in August 1914, the Canadian government quickly enacted the federal War Measures Act (WMA). The Act’s sweeping powers permitted the government to suspend or limit civil liberties in the interest of Canada’s protection, including the right to incarcerate “enemy aliens”.

“Enemy Aliens” and Internment Operations

The term “enemy alien” referred to the citizens of states legally at war with Canada who resided in Canada during the war. Under the authority of the WMA, Canada interned 8,579 enemy aliens in 24 receiving stations and internment camps from 1914-1920. Otter classified 3,138 as prisoners of war, while the others were civilians. The majority of those interned were of Ukrainian descent, targeted because Ukraine was then split between Russia (an ally) and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, an enemy of the British Empire. In addition to those placed in camps, another 80,000 enemy aliens, again mostly Ukrainians, were forced to carry identity papers and to report regularly to local police offices.

The Sunflower Project Seeds of Hope with guest Lana O’Brien #004

The Sunflower Project Seeds of Hope with guest Lana O’Brien #004

January 27, 2021

At AR:T ROUTE Radio we tell untold stories. Important wall stories of history that remind us to not repeat past mistakes. "Art is a never ending story of humanity."  We all have a story that will break your heart, and by sharing and connecting to the past we can build a stronger future.  Join Master Artist Michelle Loughery and guest Lana O’Brien in episode #004 as they TAKE IT TO THE WALL ... 

Seeds of Hope:  A Story of Ukrainian Internment in Canada.

From 1914-1920 the field now known as MacDonald Park, and home to W.L. Seaton Secondary school, was an Internment Camp for Ukrainian and Eastern European citizens.  Our show tells the story of this little known history from three perspectives: those imprisoned, those responsible for the camps from local authorities to the Canadian Government, and the citizens of Vernon with their varying points of view.

The show was created by 12 Seaton students, under the direction of Lana O’Brien, over many weeks.  Using theatre, it tells both local stories and stories from across Canada in a beautiful live production that was professionally filmed and edited for sharing in a digital medium.

Like all theatres around the world, our theatre company has been significantly impacted by COVID-19, and the streaming will be by donation.

Lana O’Brien is a Teaching Artist - School District 22, Vernon BC,
Artistic and Technical Director - 27th Street Theatre Company, and Co-ordinator - Good Will Shakespeare Festival.

In Search of the Light with guest Artist Heidi Thompson #003

In Search of the Light with guest Artist Heidi Thompson #003

January 22, 2021
AR:T ROUTE RADIO - Episode #003 - Creating Light with Artist Heidi Thompson.  The two artists talk art in the time of Covid and the search for light in art.  Thompson is an accomplished global artist from the Okanagan. The two artists find similarities as they enjoy creative conversation and playing in the creative mud puddles of life.

"My aim is to capture beauty – not by painting a landscape as I know it with trees, mountains, clouds or sunsets; rather by painting the essence of nature using her elements of colour, light, patterns, texture, movement and space." – Artist Heidi Thompson.

More of Heidi Thompson art can be seen on Heidi's website and virtual gallery tour.

I Will Not Draw in Math Class with guest Artist Roy Henry Vickers #002

I Will Not Draw in Math Class with guest Artist Roy Henry Vickers #002

November 20, 2020

Michelle and Master Artist Roy Henry Vickers have a digital coffee conversation about the importance of art in the healing of the world after Covid.  Listening to our ancestors will help create a path of healing and connection.

“A pipe carrier walks in the ways of the four directions, which are common to all nations in the world: teacher, healer, visionary and leader,” says Roy. “We always have the pipe in our minds so that when we get into situations where we feel like we’re off kilter or off centre or, we can always go back to this place of peace and centre ourselves, ask the creator to help us be who we are.” Roy Henry Vickers

Roots to Routes Muralist Michelle Loughery hosts artist Patricia Kozler #001

November 17, 2020

In Season 1 of AR:T ROUTE RADIO, “When Seniors Create" Loughery goes right to her roots to her momma's kitchen table. Through the window of modern party line technology Loughery spends time making perogies with her mother, artist Patrica Kozler, one of the major influencers in Loughery’s career. 

The two talk about how art impacted them as rural women and how important community art is in connecting all generations, especially in community building in these times.   Pull up a chair, grab a tea and take a listen!

Connect to the histories about two small towns of Loughery’s childhood … Natal and Michel.   The film 'That’s the Price’, directed by Michael Scott, the story of the coal mining towns that disappeared, and in the podcast, how Loughery painted that history so the roots would not be forgotten. 
 
 
"What happens to two dying coal towns in British Columbia when an American corporation provides a contract for millions of tons of coking coal? The film follows the consequences for the towns of Natal and Michel, suggesting that industrial growth has its price, especially with regard to the environment."

AR:T ROUTE RADIO -TAKE IT TO THE WALL

BIG ART, BIG WALLS, BIG STORIES! When Walls Talk! Join Master Artist Michelle Loughery and friends, as they bring community mural art to life.  

Climb the digital scaffolding and listen as walls reveal their secrets of over 30 years of mural projects globally. Her stories are inclusive, revealing and raw. The invisible spaces between the cities and the systems came to life while Loughery was perched on scaffolding for three decades. These are the stories from those walls.   Conversations about connecting and collaborating with creatives and community.

This is the artist view of those walls and the conversations of those who were part of the giant canvases.  Though many assisted Loughery and allowed the projects to gain momentum, Loughery was the creative force that fueled the vision. Now decades later, she is still deemed a pioneer by those who aided in the projects, by the artists and the youth, and by those who followed in her footsteps to pursue mural-based art in other communities.

The award-winning projects were also considered a monumental success based on tourism and socio-economic impacts and legacies. 

Loughery’s Wayfinder Mural Projects have helped communities raise millions of dollars, while connecting youth and elders to skills and their communities.   

Soon, what began in a small rural coal mining town, picked up momentum and started a movement, and the dream of a connected highway mural trail called AR:T ROUTE Blue - Destination Mural Town.   Her current Wayfinder Sunflower Project is connecting seniors and youth through digital and place-making art, and storytelling.
