Artists need plenty of inspiration to fuel creativity and discover innovative ways to funnel their passion into a career. This festival offers senior visual-arts students an opportunity to showcase and produce art, along with workshops run by top industry and art professionals. For educators, it’s a great way to spark new perspectives and art-making techniques to bring back to class.
Built around a new theme each year, the 2019-20 festival will explore “ARTivism: Ideas in Motion.” The positive message? Art is a time-honoured way to speak out about major issues and produce memorable change in local and global communities.
Whether it’s a workshop with an award-winning documentary filmmaker or robotics maker, or conversations with fellow artists, the festival offers a much-needed space to show, create, discover and talk about art.
