CISVAF: Visual Arts Festival
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.
Details regarding this year's festival are currently under review. Decisions will be made as to whether the event will offer a modified program, transition to online or be held in person, if it is safe and permitted to do so. News about CISVAF 2021 will be published on this page, our News feed and our social channels.
