Following Creative Paths: Re-centering Northern Artistic Life
Hosted by ArtsUNITE
Join us for a FREE Virtual Panel Discussion and film screening, discussing the lives and work of artists from Prince George, BC.
This event will explore how arts & culture can thrive in small(er) communities without urban systems and support. Using Prince George, BC as a case study/launching point, this virtual panel and Creative Paths screening will bring together artists who stayed in Prince George and artists who chose to relocate to larger urban centers. Exploring questions of professional development, metric of artist success, and grassroots vs. institutional community development, this panel efforts to re-center arts and culture conversations away from larger metropolitan cities, and toward more remote regions. This event explores the lived experience of the unique artistic community of Prince George, focusing on the challenges, concerns, differences, and future development of this (and other) non-metropolitan communities.
ASL and closed captioning available.
