Partnerships

Professional Arts Partnerships

SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programs (SFUW) engages with diverse professional arts organizations throughout the Lower Mainland. The main focus of SFUW is to engage the professional arts community of the Lower Mainland through creative entrepreneurial partnerships. 

SFUW programs are in the majority co-presentations with over twenty-five diverse cultural and recurring professional cultural partners providing a year-round calendar of arts animation. SFUW is not a venue sponsor but rather a curatorial partner within its partnership network and engages in active meaningful ways of presenting and seeding arts discourse within its unique context.

Please note: SFU Woodward's cultural and community programs are now booked for the 2016/17 and the 2017/18 seasons. SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs is now considering expressions of interest for new cultural and community events occuring between April 2018–April 2019 For more information, email sfuwproj@sfu.ca

The SFU School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) Faculty Series 

The SFU School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) Faculty Series is a special initiative of SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs featuring faculty research intended to advance or challenge conventional art practices. Ranging from solo to ensemble work, these diverse presentations can be performative to curatorial. Some works highlight a singular art discipline and others are inter-disciplinary creations, where various arts forms intersect. SCA Faculty Series are often produced in collaboration with other featured artists and professional art companies from home or abroad.

SFU Woodward's guest artist program

Featured artists, including Daniel MacIvor, Crystal Pite, and Robert Lepage, were made available to SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts students and the arts community to provide workshops, demonstrations, and mentoring within the SFU Woodward's cultural season.
