ARTIVISM: A Festival of Creative Resistance

ARTIVISM is a student-run festival for art for justice & social change. The UBC Arts and Culture District and Dive into UBC acknowledge this festival is taking place on the stolen and unsurrendered ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-waututh), and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) nations.

 

ARTIVISM is a chance for students to get involved in creating, exhibiting, performing and sharing their own works of artistic activism throughout the UBC campus. The festival will be held in the spaces of the Museum of Anthropology, Belkin Art Gallery, Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, Barnett Hall, Dorothy Somerset Studio Theatre, Hatch Gallery, MAS and AHVA art gallery, where student-led dialogues, exhibits, art sales and performances will be hosted.

ARTIVISM highlights stories of resilience and student activist art practice that challenge dominant narratives through arts and culture.
