July 2 – July 21: Jesse Orr (Montreal, QC)

Jesse is a puppeteer and linocut printmaker who will be expanding her skills to zine printing at the Roberts Street Residency. After learning about the wild seaweed harvest in Maine, Jesse hopes to connect to seaweed lovers in Halifax and share what she's learned via a zine and a seaweed-themed event. Please contact her via the the RSSC if you have wild seaweed knowledge about Halifax or environs!
