SFU ArtsLIVE is an in-person celebration of arts and culture across SFU campuses funded by the Student Experience Initiative, signalling to communities this joyous return to a better future, through authentic celebration of indigenous and diverse voices. Together, we are addressing SFU's collective well-being now, as a welcoming COVID-19 response to greet communities back to SFU, and far beyond, as a long-term approach to campus vibrancy and identity.

ArtsLIVE is an integral part of reconnecting with one another now and for the future student experience. 

Vibrant Campus

ArtsLIVE is a university-wide artistic and cultural activation of SFU spaces primarily for students aimed towards transforming the campus experience into one that is welcoming, vibrant and engaging.

Vibrant Community

Through live music, song, dance film, digital arts, poetry and broad cultural activations - reflecting the core values of equity, diversity and inclusion - ArtsLIVE aims to elevate the collective spirits of all. 

Vibrant Identity 

SFU ArtsLIVE will redefine most importantly student but also faculty, staff, and the public's engagement across campus spaces in an uplifting celebration of creativity, culture and inclusiveness. From concept to execution, SFU ArtsLIVE will hold space for aboriginal and diverse voices gathered together in a spirit of celebration.
