Arts Connection

Arts Connection Sept 2014

Wed, September 24, 2014, 10 a.m. - noon

"The Community Engaged Artist" with Rebecca Graham

An art practice has the potential to expand beyond the studio and the gallery, to reach out to the wider community to kindle curiosity, generate discussion, foster social cohesion, and even inspire new ways of being and doing. An artist who is able to navigate in this realm of practice, known as 'community engagement' or 'social engagement', is eligible for many exciting professional opportunities. Many artists already have some form of social engagement in their practice, but how many of us are valuing it for what it's worth?

Rebecca Graham (BFA) will give an overview of community engagement as an aspect of art practice and present some of the opportunities in Vancouver for artists who are community-engaged, followed by a discussion about how to respect and make this part of our practices more intentional. 

Arts Connection, our monthly networking session for artists,  takes place on the last Wednesday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon. Connect with other artists, share ideas and receive support.
