The live stream will take place on Friday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. PSTTune in to Kathryn’s YouTube channel here.

Victoria-based musician, songwriter/ recording artist and recording studio owner Kathryn Calder, was selected as the City’s Artist in Residence in 2019. For the past 15 years, Kathryn has been recording and touring as a vocalist/ keyboardist with indie rock group The New Pornographers. She has also released three solo records, five albums with Immaculate Machine, and one album with her latest project, Frontperson.

The Artist in Residence program aims to ‘keep art in mind’, providing the opportunity for a professional artist to work collaboratively with City staff and the community to identify and develop creative artwork to augment one or more capital projects annually over a two-year term.
