Between October 2011 and June 2013, several Canadian artists will share their experiences and address the topic “Arts Matter”. We are honoured and excited to welcome dancer Margie Gillis, painter Tony Scherman, conductor Bramwell Tovey, and many more artists to the Chief Sepass Theatre at the Langley Fine Arts School. To start the series, we are thrilled to welcome Sir Ken Robinson, internationally recognized leader in the development of education, creativity and innovation. See you all there beginning October 14th 2011.
During the day, Langley Fine Art School students will have access to the artists during workshop presentations, artist critiques, and/or class seminars. In the same evening, the featured artist will present their ideas to the community, all are welcome to attend. Each evening presentation will open with Langley Fine Art School student performances with the speaker to follow. There will be a question and answer period to conclude the event.
Additional Arts Matter events include a Post-Secondary Forum on January 13 2012, where several schools from British Columbia will present their program and address the topic “Arts Matter”. Running concurrently is the Arts Matter Curriculum Project, Student-led Arts Initiatives, and Arts Educators’ Workshop, which are led by Dr. Susan O’Neill, Director of RYME and Associate Professor at SFU.
