Eugene-a-Thon

The Eugene-A-Thon

Eugene-a-Thon

Jun 18 @ 4:30 PM - 10:30 PM MT 
Online

What if you mixed the Jerry Lewis Telethon with a fundraiser to promote teen literacy and arts education? What if you centered it around a Calgary artistic icon and let his freak flag fly for six colourful, unpredictable, unforgettable hours? What if you lined up 28 of the country’s best artists and community leaders to join Eugene Stickland for performance, conversation, inspiration, and provocation? What if you broadcast it online to the world from Calgary’s most beloved café, providing a unique, accessible connection to the arts when we need it most?

You’d have Wordfest’s Eugene-A-Thon, a once-in-a-pandemic virtual gathering on Thursday, June 18, from 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. MT. The marathon broadcast on Wordfest.com will beam out from Eugene Stickland's home turf, Caffe Beano, where he has become the unofficial artist-in-residence.
