Safety Animal

Performance by Safety Animal, a new breed of spokesanimal.

Additional Information

Meet Safety Animal at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival Street Fair on May 27. Safety Animal is a new breed of spokesanimal. Unlike the more familiar Elmer the Safety Elephant, who taught children never to run nor to suffer momentary excitement that might cause a nasty traffic accident, new powerful Safety Animal is convinced that safety means more than making things convenient for car drivers. The performance is a collaboration between Sally McKay and Ben Smith-Lea, artists and bike activists. Sally McKay lives and works in Toronto. She is among a group of organizers/hosts/designers for the Annual Parking Meter Party presented in Toronto by ARC, Advocacy for Respect for Cyclists. McKay is one of the founding contributors of Lola magazine. Ben Smith-Lea also lives and works in Toronto and is a member of ARC. YIKES!BIKES! explores the bicycle as art, local transportation, inventive engineering, and passion. In collaboration with partners such as the Cathedral Village Arts Festival, the City of Regina's Cool Down the City Commuter Challenge, Regina Public Library Branches, Saskatchewan Cycling Association and The Co-operators WiseRider Program, YIKES!BIKES! includes an art exhibition, a publication, demonstrations, a performance, bicycle safety/decoration workshops and parades.
