islandness is a living experiment. An open platform spanning the North Atlantic, this project explores life on two northern islands through the art practices of two islanders: Jane Walker (Newfoundland) and Vivian Ross-Smith (Shetland). islandness aims to bring people and place together, forging new bonds among individuals, artists and communities through making and gathering.

The project is experiential and personal for the artists and the communities involved. Everyday life, rhythms, gathering places and local experiences are central to the project. Whether that is through participation in a workshop, attending a community supper, or taking the time to consider what it means to be an islander in shared conversations.
