1. DodoLab has been collaborating with Hamilton (Canada) artist, musician and songwriter Tor Lukasik-Foss (aka Tiny Bill Cody) on the creation of A New Workers Songbook. The project was originally commissioned by the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre (WAHC) and was based on their collection of books and recordings of songs that reflect Hamilton's history of industry and organized labour. The goal of this ongoing project is to create songs about current realities for working people in Hamilton. This video (shot on an iPhone so apologies for the quality) documents Tor's performance at the closing of the exhibition component of the project at WAHC, December 17, 2010. Tor sings a few songs and talks about his process and evolving concept of writing workers songs.

    You can see documentation of the exhibition and other related activities at DodoLab's Flickr stream.

  2. On Friday, November 12th, 2010, DodoLab and SACY (Sudbury Action Centre for Youth) staged the First Annual Tournament of Beasts in Sudbury’s Memorial Park (Ontario, Canada). The project featured a croquet competition between a half-dozen animals (raccoon, bear, wolf, rabbit, deer and moose) and was staged as a catalyst to encourage public discussion about the use and control of public spaces. The project is part of a larger community initiative in Sudbury being developed in collaboration with the Musagetes Foundation, Ontario Trillium Foundation, SACY, Carrefour Sudbury and Metis Council of Sudbury. This video was produced by Chris Elliot of Insight Media Works.
