Sled Island 2013's Special Events announcement is coming soon!
In previous years, Sled Island has featured special events and workshops ranging from intimate weirdo guitar workshops lead by Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth), panel discussions about what it is to emerge in Calgary’s arts community, and seances to evoke dead pop stars (Ian Svenonius). In 2012, our events included our party inspiration Andrew W.K. taking questions from people of all-ages about what it means to party, Tim Hecker in conversation, a DIY bring-your-own-Gameboy chiptune instrument building workshop led by GreyScreen and a noise maker tour of the National Music Centre. This series of events and hands-on workshops was loosely strung together and aimed to empower and inspire the exchange of ideas, skills, and engagement with the presenters and people of Calgary gathered at Sled Island.
