The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Life: or how to be smarter, happier, and better without trying at all, is a self help book (or anti self-help book), in the form of a multimedia art installation. Lazy Girl uses scientific facts and personal stories to satirically juxtapose self-improvement tips with narratives of unmotivated quests for a silver bullet or quick fix.

Kieran Oudshoorn is an international award-winning documentary photographer and broadcast journalist with CBC North, who has worked with a variety of grassroots Indigenous organizations for the past decade. He is one of the founders of Radio-BED, a network of podcasts focused on social justice and indigenous issues. He has worked for a number of Canadian publications including Macleans, Vice, and Canadian Geographic on national and international assignments. He is currently working as a reporter, radio anchor and fill-in morning show host for CBC News in Iqaluit.

Selene Vakharia is passionate about creating engaging experiences for audiences that spark conversation. She is interested in finding new models for information sharing and exploration, especially those that utilize spaces in unexpected ways. Over the past three years in Whitehorse, Yukon, Selene has told stories and created dialogues through participatory and site-specific installations and performances.
