The Riding Mountain Artists’ Residency provides professional artists with an opportunity to be inspired and create their works in the park’s setting. In return these professional artists invite visitors to interact with them and uniquely discover the park through their eyes and works.
During her residency, Hannah Green will work on a collection of poetry, Do You Know Where We Are. With humour and irony, this collection explores identity—takes up residence in the lawless space between reality and expectation, departure and arrival, who you are and who you want to be. By cracking open idioms and clichés, these poems challenge the authority of language—show that at the right angle even familiarity can become unexpected.
Her poetry has appeared in journals across Canada including Arc and The Malahat Review. She is the recipient of the 2014 Writers’ Circle Prize and the 2015 Lucy H. Bertschinger Memorial Prize for poetry. She is the editor of the University of Winnipeg creative writing journal juice, and the editorial assistant at Contemporary Verse 2, a national poetry magazine based in Winnipeg.
