So here we are, the second installation of  this tentatively titled project.

This week I present to you

 Sarah Kilpack!

Sarah is a woman of many hats. Actually, one of the first times I met her she was dressed as a massive, walking rock. Like this huge, exceptionally realistic papier-maché rock was one of said hats, and it was amazing. Sure, she studied a little bit of everything at NSCAD, but right now she's got good things going on in the heart of Toronto. She's one of a small group of artists and curators who are taking over and transforming one of the oldest standing buildings on Spadina Ave into a gallery+event+garden+etc space. In the past, Sarah was (an intensely private sketcher and film dork but is now becoming more and more interested in any kind of socially engaging work, which is a pretty nice transition if you ask me. 

Kilpack is savvy with herbs and tinctures, environment + costume design; she always has some interesting concoction or stone or other neat thing to tell me about when I see her. These days Sarah spends a chunk of her time volunteering or training with various community driven organizations such as The Stop and you can find her at Double Double Land one Monday a month, making sure the monthly comedy show Doored runs smoothly.
