Annual Public Events

You should be here!

The Emily Carr culture of exhibition and community engagement celebrates creativity in all its forms of expression. Our marquee events draw thousands to enjoy art, design, and media, and to celebrate the talent of our community.

While the galleries are full on most days at Emily Carr with student works generated through the course of their academic studies, there are several main events you won't want to miss. Learn about the University's public Gallery and watch the public Events Calendar for all exhibitions.
