Curating Cleaner Waters Production

We are currently in the process of curating a short mystical, magical fiction and funny film about the plastic issue in the ocean.  This video is the first of more to come, produced by Wild Craft Play ‘sCool and friends.

Wish to take a Sneak Peek back stage as we finish our Curating Cleaner Waters Production? We are offering a private blog received by email that gives you space to offer feedback and witness the unfolding of our production while we are back stage finishing and finalizing.

By joining this Sneak Peek Inner Circle, you understand that this is like having the Artistic Director, Jamie Black, take you by the hand, whispering and saying, Sssssh, come backstage, you have to see this.

This is a production in the making, and we are only inviting folks who can keep it a secret until we are launched.

You will receive an email with links to a private journal entry, where you can read the current story, see how you can help, and then watch some un-cut footage backstage while we curate.

We are doing this because we understand that this is a sensitive topic, we don’t know what we don’t know, and we are open to feedback before we go live. So if you have time to share your thoughts, wisdom, advice and resources, we trust that by the time we go live, it will be even better than we expected.

When you receive the email, it starts with this image, and shares 3 things:
1. Current Story
2. Opportunities to Engage
3. Backstage raw footage of the journey.

You get a password to access the blog that has all the content, and we ask that you keep this to yourself.

If you wish to invite anyone to join the movement, send them this eNewsletter link, or click the Current Story image.

        Donors and Sponsors
        If you wish to witness the journey of crafting engaging footage, and offering your feedback join our Inner Circle.  Contact or click the button above.


        We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new Artists.  Joanna Finch and Anand David Embry.  Both extraordinary musicians that have expressed interest in making a difference in this way. Stay tuned (pun intended) to witness the unfolding.

        Curating Cleaner Waters is an initiative started in January 2022, currently inviting professional and amateur artists, musicians, storytellers, and movement artists to bring their creative selves in.  Step into the crafting studio prepared to move in front of or behind the screen, make improvised sounds, song, and magical being-like narration into the microphones. Or craft visual art on the overhead projector.

        You know when you look up and see geese flying and you say out loud “Hey, Bob, we’re going the wrong way!!” in that funny awkward voice and it makes you laugh (or maybe that’s just me). Find your inner funny bone and tickle it with us as we crack open the issue of plastics and garbage in our oceans, narrating from the perspective of tiny “Ones.” Beings that are trying to get our attention, and are doing something, even though they have no idea WHAT to do or HOW.

        Your funds are helping us capture the truth,

        Craft the magic

        and get these stories to the right people.

        In the Spring of 2022, we were Curating Cleaner Waters in a Shadow Play at the Comox Valley Art Gallery Saturday, May 14th. We had a blast!

        NOW, a small committee of youth and adults are meeting monthly to curate a solution for the garbage and plastics in the ocean, specifically in the Salish Sea. We are welcoming new people. Join by emailing Jamie.

        Our Mission:
        Create a mythical magical story to help humans fix problems like dead orcas who eat seals who eat fish who eat plastic.

        Our Vision:
        To move people who hear our stories and inspire them to make a difference globally.

        How did this production come to be?

        We interviewed Liz Johnston to learn more about the issue that we are bringing to light.
        Children at Wild Craft Play were invited to do a service projects by founder, Jamie Black. Once they decided they wanted to help the animals, we found Liz Johnston and the beach clean-up efforts.  Since we are in the realm of producing children’s stories through a magical experience of green screen, video projection, old school overhead projection, dance, art, music and ridiculousness, we asked if we could help, and Liz said yes.  She expressed that they have been trying so hard to affect change around this issue, and they need something different.

        This isn’t just a production, it’s a movement, and it is in motion.

        All efforts will be made to host the Spring Break Production, THEN we launch a marketing campaign that will bring this worldwide.

        The Spring Beach Cleanup Production WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!
        Mar 28 to April 2, 2022
        This experience created a production company that comes in, figures out the story, and produces it.  It’s not a typical camp. Think of it as becoming a family for a week.  There was some facilitation, lots of learning, tonnes of space for imagination and creativity, and lots of downtime to enjoy the wonders of Denman.

        Join our Mission. Take Action!
        At Wild Craft Play, we start with a sense of health and work our way to serenity and abundance.

        Following the Earth Charter, we expand our capacity to become in-service to community, then reaching beyond our region, the sky isn’t even the limit from here.
