Krima! Barrie is a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit. It is a multi-arts project that has drawn together over 100 citizens of Barrie from all walks of life to respond to the question: “How do we manage to get by day-to-day?” and to share discoveries through performance, visual arts and word. The first public exchange was performances at The Creative Space November 23, 2014. COMING: “Krima! reflected” May10-30, 2015 at Art in House Gallery, Barrie Ontario is a multi-media installation of photos, video and installations that responds to the project themes through the lens of the Nov 23 performances. The May 10 opening includes live performance. The project is co-produced by Across Oceans Arts, The David Busby Street Centre, and Simcoe Contemporary Dancers.

Sometimes when we look at ourselves reflected back to us we see things more clearly. The gallery exhibition KRIMA! Reflected, is a reflection on the many ways we support each other to survive life’s challenges. It reflects participants’ generous discoveries, confessions and wisdom. And it is a catalyst for self-reflection to bring greater awareness to our connectedness.
Please join us at the May 10 opening celebration. The exhibit continues May 10–30, 2015.

What does “Krima” mean?  The first version of “Krima” was born in Athens Greece, where this modern Greek expression is part of everyday conversation. Said sarcastically by sympathetic friends when one complains about everyday annoyances, it is also used with great compassion when serious troubles occur, “Krima” loosely translated is “what a shame” or “quel dommage”.
The ancient form “Krimata” actually means “Crimes”.

Organizations cooperating for Krima! Barrie include: Across Oceans Arts, The David Busby Street Centre, Simcoe Contemporary Dancers, Art in House, Central United Church, Eastwood Secondary School, Orillia Dance Academy, Kreative Dance Company, Moving Art, The Creative Space and over 100 individuals who are sharing time and experience as idea generators and creators, performers, documentarists, social instigators and production and administration crew.
