Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic book “The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World,” GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold.

An intimate exploration of real-life gift economies, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we labour in service of our gifts, and a celebration of the imagination.
