Mobilizing the Arts for Community Connection and Change is a free one-day summit at the Museum of Vancouver that will explore art as a catalyst for sparking community imagination around belonging, trust, and social resiliency in urban centres.
Some of Vancouver's most dynamic artists and designers will share their ideas, projects, and initiatives in a series of rapid-fire presentations. Audience members will then take the lead in imagining how the arts can be used in interactive ways to advance these themes across Metro Vancouver through a series of workshops facilitated by the presenters.
The summit will wrap up with a peer-to-peer granting session, where some of those solutions and interventions could be funded up to $1,500. The summit will help to share big imaginations and best practices for using art as a catalyst for making change in our communities. Presenters include: Ayotzi 68, Corey Bulpitt, Alex Grünenfelder, Zoe Kreye, Carmen Papalia and Holly Schmidt.
This summit will take place October 22, 2016 from 1 - 5 p.m.
