Become the Raven this Halloween!

Looking for something to do this Halloween? Be a part of the art! The igNIGHT Festival is looking for 5 or 6 people who would like to volunteer for the performative aspect of igNIGHT’s The Unkindness by Kasie Campbell. The Unkindness features a raven, a local foul who encompasses many affects; a chariot of the soul; a symbol of hope; a model of resilience; an infamous trickster; and a mediator of life and death. Throughout time, the raven is depicted by many cultures and portrayed within their mythologies, legends and folklore. The Unkindness (formerly “Untitled”) is a piece inspired by the revered avian creature.

Conceptualized by Kasie Campbell and executed with the assistance of the students of Keyano’s Art & Design program, their collaborative efforts bring the notorious raven to life through a myriad of materials, lighting and performance art. A piece that pushes the creative boundaries of all parties including: the artist, the students and the observers, The Unkindness is a piece that will pervade the mind and, like the raven, stamp its repute.   

Be a Part of the Art!

If you would like to volunteer and be a part of the final performance this is what is required:


Kasie will provide black feathery masks for each participant.


Performers will situate and disperse behind the Raven and in the trees then slowly come out into the fog (there is a fog machine) by the bird and collect twigs and leaves. To add to the nest.


Friday, October 30th



The volunteers will meet the artist Kasie Campbell at the gazeebo at Keyano’s Doug McCrae Park where she will give you a mask and instruct you on what to do.

Performers can keep the masks once they have finished. If you are interested, please contact Kasie Campbell at:
