Description

The City of Calgary Public Art Program is presenting a community engagement session on Thursday, May 18th at the Rosemont Community Centre to discuss plans for the upcoming Street Art Program for Youth murals.

The Street Art Program for Youth is designed to provide a hands-on experience to youth who are interested in street art. Guided by a professional lead artist, the program allows up to 14 youth aged 12 to 17 to participate in a twelve-week workshop series focused on the history, culture, tools and techniques of urban muralism and street art.

Alberta artist AJA Louden is the program lead and lead artist for the 2017 program. AJA is a Calgary-born muralist who runs the Aerosol Academy program across Alberta.

In 2017, the murals will be created on-site at the pathway tunnels located in Confederation Park. A celebration with youth and community will take place in late August, with the exact date to be announced in July.

2018 Art at Work Symposium: Igniting Connections

Description

Join us on Saturday, January 27, 2018 for the Art at Work Symposium: Igniting Connections at the Richmond Cultural Centre, 7700 Minoru Gate. The Richmond Art Gallery, Richmond Public Art and BC CARFAC will present a full day of panel discussions, break-out sessions and more for working artists, creative professionals, curators and art specialists to examine the role of community as part of an artist’s professional practice.

 

What is the role of community for professional practicing artists and creatives? How do groups of people with similar interests come together to organize, present artist-initiated projects, art exhibitions, or platforms to network, show and sell their work? How do artists and other creative professionals engage and operate with, and within, communities as part of their practice? And how does it contribute to the development of the artist and the larger community? Guest speakers include Dolly Hopkins (Public Dreams Society, 1985-2007), Yun-Jou Chang (Cinevolution Media Arts Society), Mira Malatestinic (Eastside Culture Crawl), Eileen Mosca (Arts Off Main), Hilda Yuet-Yi-Fung (Danny Chen Studio), Emily Macrae (Nordicity), Ash Tanasiychuk (VANDOCUMENT), Mark Busse (Creative Mornings Vancouver), Charles Latimer (The Toast Collective) and Jamie Smith (THRIVE Arts Studio).

 

The Richmond Art at Work Program offers workshops and events designed to provide artists with the knowledge and skills required for pursuing a professional arts practice in the fields of visual art, community arts and public art. The workshops and events aim to provide artists with practical, inspiring and career enhancing programming; support the growth and development of the arts and culture sector in Richmond; and encourage networking and sharing within the arts and culture community.
