Barbara Adler is an interdisciplinary artist and performer, whose practice incorporates text, music, event making and design. She lives in xwesam, colonially known as Roberts Creek, on the unceded territories of the shíshálh and Skwxwu7mesh Nations.

Adler’s recent projects use intricate textile objects to reorganize work around relational time and seasonal cycles, drawing parallels between human exhaustion and environmental precarity. She is the owner of an old horse named ‘Monet’, who has taught her a few things, but mainly this: in early April, clear days are a currency beyond any other. She holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies and a BA in Art and Cultural Studies, both from Simon Fraser University. https://www.tenthousandwolves.com

Stories of semi-rural life on the Sunshine Coast, meet French fashion forecasting, mermaids and the long tail of hustle culture in this free-ranging artist talk. It’s a blurring of handwork and leaf-work, offering an empathetic connection between human burnout and environmental exhaustion and a thread of solidarity with the more-than-human world.
