From October 23 to 34 2004, with assistance from the Canada Council for the Arts Off the Radar: Initiatives in Critical Thinking grant, CJSW 91 FM, and ACAD, M:ST presented M:ST 2.5 Grand Action. This was a three-day seminar event that included studio visits at the Banff Centre, a public Grand Action Panel Discussion held at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and Community Party and Networking Session held in the Kaboom Room at the Uptown Theater. The panel was facilitated by Daina Warren and made up of a diverse group of artists, instructors, curators and theorists: Michael Campbell, Janice Rahn, Grant Poier, Rajdeep Gil and Ashok Mathur. The weekend events were concluded with the M:ST Annual General Meeting held at The New Gallery.
The event was documented by curator Donna Wawzonek, who wrote the essay below in response to the events of the weekend.
