About : Created by Hamilton (Canada) artist and musician Tor Lukasik-Foss as part of DodoLab’s New Worker’s Songbook project, this publication is a simple graphic guide to writing and performing your own work song. The project was first developed in collaboration with the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre (Hamilton) followed by collaborations with The Print Studio (Hamilton) and SACY (Sudbury Action Centre for Youth).

Tor Lukasik-Foss (Tiny Bill Cody) is an artist, writer, musician and performer interested in the ways in which art becomes a public language or a publicly shared experience. His visual work employs the idioms of conventional sign making, and is frequently designed for site-specific purposes. His performance work explores the notion of the public concert, and tries to deliberately tamper with the relationship between the performer, the stage, and the audience.
DodoLab is an art and design based program that employs experimental and adaptive processes to spark positive change and resiliency. We work collaboratively with a diversity of emergent thinkers/doers to imaginatively and critically repurpose familiar tools of the social sciences, marketing and activism to engage with the public in public. Our focus is the complex relationships between people and their surroundings and how communities define, and are defined by, their environment. DodoLab puts the creative process at the heart of confronting social and environmental challenges.
