The world is in a period of rapid and often frightening change. Conservatism consumes democracy, minority groups fight increasing oppression, and the planet itself is under threat of climate disaster.
But there is hope. More people are practising some form of self-expression than ever before – creating video games, taking hip hop classes, enjoying live performance and posting content to YouTube. Creativity and innovation are on the rise, and artists are increasingly harnessing that power for social good.
REVOLUTION asks the question: how do we engage our imaginations and creative potential to create a better world? How can we take action, together, for a new society — where diversity is encouraged, art and culture are celebrated, and we are responsible to our most vulnerable citizens?
A REVOLUTION is happening that is both frightening and exciting. Will you join?
The BC Alliance for Arts + Culture is proud to present our 2017 annual conference, REVOLUTION: Engaging Human Creativity. REVOLUTION will take place June 8 in Vancouver, at VSO School of Music and The Annex. Attendees arrive at 8:30 a.m. at the VSO School of Music for check-in, and the event runs until 4:30, with reception to follow.
