Lori St. Clair comes from a Graphic Design background with a photography major and started her journey into the arts on a professional level. She has exhibited her work throughout Ontario, including the Parliament in Ottawa, and has won awards for her photographs, for illustration, and for her paper pulp sculpture.
Her passion is teaching anyone and speaking to everyone about the power of creativity in our lives and the need for it in our world today. Lori enjoys the enchantment that surrounds the arts created through our partnership with imagination. She has taken her passion for the arts, and also for collaborative pieces that build co-operative teamwork and interdependency, into schools and art programs in the community to cultivate a hospitable, nurturing environment that encourages exploration, experimentation and growth.

Evidence is a collaboration between sound artists Stephan Moore and Scott Smallwood. Since 2001, they have developed a distinctive language of deeply layered sound, using field recordings of natural and industrial sounds as a primary source of inspiration and sonic material. Their activities range from studio compositions and live improvisations to sound installations, street performances, and numerous collaborations with other musicians, choreographers, and video artists. They have presented their work world-wide, including recent appearances at the Balance-Unbalance Conference in Manizales, Colombia, the New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) Conference in Brisbane, Australia, and at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in upstate New York.
