Flick Harrison is a writer, media artist, filmmaker, community-engager and educator in Vancouver. Starting out on the CBC youth series Road Movies as one of Canada’s first professional videographers, he’s since made video in Pakistan, the US, Mexico and China. His work includes research, creation, visual design, youth leadership, activism and media literacy.
“I’ve explored boundaries of all kinds in media, politics, education and the arts for over twenty years. As an artist, I explode the aesthetics of political conflict; as an educator, I try to make media flow organically from the social. My ambition is to lead, support and challenge non-profits, schools, community groups and other progressive actors to improve their understanding and use of media, all while having fun.”
His work has been seen on dance and theatre stages, by millions on television, been nominated and won awards internationally, and slipped into, under and through almost every Canadian funding niche. The Globe and Mail called him “hilarious,” and the Georgia Straight called his work “gorgeously sophisticated.”
