Working Artists

Public Talks + Conferences

Thursday, Nov 09, 2017 - 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Reliance Theatre

Join us for the first edition of this year's Working Artists panel series, featuring presentations and group discussions with ECU alumni Mat Troy (Founder and Director Vancouver Arts and Leisure), Steffanie Ling (Events and Exhibitions Curator, VIVO; independant critic), Gabrielle Strong (visual and public artist), and more to be announced. 

Working Artists is a semi-annual series of lectures and workshops for students and emerging artists. In this session, panelists from a wide variety of artistic disciplines share how they first emerged into their field through a focus on public engagement and supporting community. Speakers will share experience from a range of approaches including creating non-profit organizations in the arts, curating, art writing, and public art. 

The panel presentation will be followed by a moderated Q + A and breakout sessions.

This is a free event, everyone welcome. 


Working Artists is part of the Visual Art Forums and is co-presented by the Audain Faculty of Art, the Faculty of Culture + Community and the Career + Professional Development Office.
