The first video features highlights from Colour and Sound, an exhibition of Carle Hessay's small abstracts accompanying poetry readings at the book launch events held at the Templed Mind Gallery in Victoria, BC in 2014. For Kelly, With Love: Poems on the Abstracts of Carle Hessay (Treeline, 2014). The following 4 videos record the actual readings in full.

Those who were able to give live readings on the various days of the events include: Karen Ballinger, bill bissett, Dorothy Field, Patrick Friesen, Corinna Gilliland, Judith Heron, Eve Joseph, Barbara Colebrook Peace, Linda Rogers, Carol Ann Sokoloff, Gray Sutherland, Patricia Young, and Terence Young. Professor Kathryn Kerby-Fulton from the University of Notre Dame gave a special talk on Kelly Parsons.
