I have collaborated with Margaret on several occasions, most recently editing the stories from her Inter-Generational Women’s Writing workshop in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Mother Daughter Bake Off with Margaret Dragu and her daughter Aretha.

Mother Daughter Bake-Off
Our episodic cooking show, Jill and Lorna’s Kitchen, travels to exotic Finn Slough (outside Vancouver BC), home of Lady Justice (Governor General Award winning multidisciplinary artist Margaret Dragu) and her daughter Aretha. Using comedic banter while exchanging recipes, the work embodies the process of sharing culinary secrets between generations. Bonus Feature: Learn how to bake bread and make Super Student Salad.

Walking Woman (2004).
Produced by Margaret Dragu. Directed by Lorna Boschman.

Walking Woman is a new Boschman/Dragu video that documents an all-day community participation performance. Beginning and ending on the steps of the Vancouver Art Gallery, a group of Vancouver and Richmond citizens put on their walking shoes and dance, walk, and celebrate the pedestrian and bus lifestyle.

Walking Woman = dance + parade + tour + ecology + community + celebration and encourages the viewer to ask questions about the nature and limits of public art, spectacle, performance, community, and inclusion. Inspired by the visual art by Michael Snow bearing the same name, Walking Woman shows community art in action and is simply a whole lot of fun.
