ACW 2017 Program

We invite you to join us to explore the present and future of art for social change (ASC)/community-engaged art in Canada and abroad! After nearly five years of research about ASC in Canada, our team has designed this gathering in response to what we heard from artists, participants, scholars, organizations, funders and others involved with this fast-growing and vibrant sector. This gathering is not your usual conference; most of our time will be devoted to facilitated dialogue, knowledge-sharing and networking, as well as providing opportunities for cross-sector conversations and action-oriented planning.

Whether you are deeply involved or newly interested in arts-infused change work, we hope that ACW 2017 will provide you with useful knowledge, skills and perspectives in a wide range of topics – from emerging practices, including facilitation and new forms of partnerships, to current arts-infused research and funding opportunities/policies. Video showings, display of your materials and space for informal conversations round out the program.
