SFU ArtsLIVE is an ongoing series of arts and cultural activations across a wide variety of unique spaces around SFU campuses.
Through the arts and culture, we join together as a campus community to celebrate differences, engage in shared experience, and foster rich campus identity.
As students, staff, and faculty return to SFU spaces there is an exceptional opportunity to reintroduce the campus experience as bright, alive, and welcoming. ArtsLIVE brings colour and renewed vitality to SFU spaces in a celebration of Indigenous and diverse creative voices, and serves as an integral part of reconnecting with one another now and for the future campus experience.
SFU ArtsLIVE is a university-wide student welcoming and wellness cultural initiative aimed at enriching campus life. Weekly live arts pop-ups and performances will animate unique spaces across all three SFU campuses. Through the arts and culture, we join together as a campus community to celebrate differences, engage in shared experience, and foster rich campus identity.
SFU's equity, diversity and inclusion values will be featured throughout programming selection. Indigenous voices will be featured prominently; from hosting events, to sharing artistic work, to behind-the-scenes decision making. Through arts and culture, ArtsLIVE is an exceptional catalyst for the celebration of diverse voices across SFU's many communities.
In giving prominent space to the arts on campus, we signal the value of creativity in a living and learning community.
In filling campus spaces with rich experiences through the arts, we will create opportunities for accessible holistic care of the emotional and spiritual self.
In celebrating and holding space for the rich diversity of voices we will create a space of abundance. All engagement will be guided by EDI principles with a focus on Indigenous and alumni voices.
In creating spaces that students, staff, faculty, and the greater public want to be a part of, we will anchor the SFU campus experience through unique and shared identity.
