Season 3 artist Oliver Herring–in collaboration with a committee of young, local volunteers–will present Canada’s first TASK event tomorrow, June 14. Part of Toronto’s Luminato 2008 festival, this “participatory-performance-art-making-party” will take place on the Regent Park baseball field from 3:00-7:00pm.

The rules:
1) Take a task from the central box.
2) Write down a task–whatever you can imagine–to replace the one you took.
3) Complete your TASK, wherever it may lead you.

TASK is free and open to the public. Watch the YouTube video trailer here.
