ARTVISIM FESTIVAL 2018

 

 

 

 

 ARTIVISM: A festival of Creative Resistance

with music, poetry, visual art and cultural events at UBC

OCTOBER 1-5, 2018

Presented by your UBC Arts and Culture District and DIVE

 

The first annual ARTIVISM is a chance for students to get involved in campus culture and be the artists that shape UBC. Students will create, exhibit, perform and share their own works of artistic activism throughout the 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.
