About this event

Join us on January 25 to 27, 2022, for three half-days of exchange, dialogue, and community-building at our national gathering Art for Social Change NOW (ASC NOW). This is the inaugural (online) event of the Art for Social Change Network (ASCN), a new national network of community-engaged art for social change (ASC) artists and organizations.

Right now, in every corner of Canada, community-engaged artists and organizations are nurturing new forms of collaborative creation, dialogue, partnerships, and action for positive change. Together let's explore important questions: Who is doing the work? What are the current struggles and innovative solutions? How can we and how do we address issues of equity and justice? How are we rising to the critical challenges happening in the community-engaged arts landscape today? Come celebrate the power of transformative change through the processes of participatory artmaking!
