Staying connected is more important than ever. Creative Collective is hosting a visual gallery made by students, staff, and faculty that explores different themes each month.

All SFU staff, students and faculty are encouraged to submit their art to be featured on our virtual art gallery which is hosted through Padlet. The gallery officially launched at the end of Month of Welcome on September 21.

December winner: Anna Markovic

As January is Sexual Asssault Awareness Month, this month’s gallery prompt follows SAAM’s theme: centering the voices and perspectives of Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour to eliminate sexual violence and to create safer, more equitable communities. Submit your art pieces related to this theme and we will create a final art mosaic for SAAM 2021.

When you submit your art pieces, you will also be entered for a chance to win 1 of 2 Indigo or SFU Bookstore gift cards.

Creative Collective will also be curating a consent playlist on Spotify, made by students, staff, and faculty. Submit a song for the playlist!

All submissions should be emailed to hcsinfo@sfu.ca with subject line: Our Creative Community Submission. The email should include the following:

  • The art piece
  • Title of art
  • Your full name or “anonymous” if you wish not to be identified
  • Your SFU email
  • A short blurb describing your piece and its relation to the theme (max. 250 words)
  • Confirmation of the completed consent form
Please note: By submitting, you consent to having your name posted unless otherwise stated.

We will send you a confirmation email once your submission has been received.

Your submission may be displayed on Padlet and may display the title of your art, the art piece, your name or “anonymous”, and the short description of the piece that you submitted.

Sometimes working on art can evoke different feelings and experiences.

There are a number of support options available if you'd like to talk to someone.
