Inside Out: Visual Art Summer Intensive

We've joined teams again with Arts Umbrella and Contemporary Art Gallery to present a three week visual art intensive from August 8 – 26 specifically designed for youth between the age of 14 and 19 interested in developing their visual art practice.

A stimulating and challenging experience for young artists committed to experimentation in their art making in a supportive studio environment. Youth will have the opportunity to work with leading artists, curators, and educators in Vancouver as they explore a range of contemporary art practices such as the creation of site-specific installations, large-scale collaborative sculptures, and exhibition making. Participants will engage in critiques and discussions about developing ideas, working with materials, and viewing works of art.

Three weeks of intensive effort will result in a one-day exhibition at the CAG in downtown Vancouver.

Applications are now open. Download one here. Applications must be submitted to no later than 5pm on Thursday June 30. Please put Visual Art Summer Intensive 2016 in the subject heading of the email.

For details about the program, contact Arts Umbrella Artistic Director Visual Arts, Roxanne Gagnon at or 604-681-5268 x225.

SCA Fall 2016 Orientation

All new students interested in Contemporary Arts courses are welcome to attend our orientation. Also, returning students are invited to hear the keynote talk and have snacks while talking to the new group of students during the break-out/mingle session.

New students will hear from Student Services, our departmental Student Unions, Career Services, and a bunch of our friendly staff from the School.

The event is free and there is lots of room, so please feel free to bring your folks. This is the welcome event aimed specifically for SCA students. You might also be interested in attending the Burnaby Welcome event (but it isn't necessary) and the Hile'kw 2016: FCAT Welcome event for all first year students across the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT) on September 9 (details here).

Please check back here for more information about our upcoming orientation.

This year's keynote presentation will be a panel featuring Milton Lim (Theatre), Remy Siu (New Music), and Natalie Tin Yin Gan (Dance) of the Hong Kong Exile Arts Association. Formed in 2011 while all three were SCA students, Hong Kong Exile Arts Association is dedicated to critically-engaged collaborative and interdisciplinary investigation towards the production of vital and innovative art. Find out more about them and their work on their website.
