The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE provides a weekly meeting place for student artists, art appreciators and kind-of-want-to-try-art-casually-but-didn’t-know-where-to-go-ers to hang out, share tales of creative woe and triumph, find potential collaborators, embark on projects, and above all, get to know each other in a relaxed environment. What the collective does will be determined by the people who come. It might simply be a social event, or perhaps the collective will work on some bigger artistic projects throughout 2020.

The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE will gather every Friday between 3-4pm in a zoom (even in Semester break and SWOTVAC).  Everyone interested is welcome to drop-in for as long or short a time as they want and to work on their projects in the company of others. 

The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE is a non-binding agreement to listen and be heard, a place to find and respond to others’ art, to sometimes test your work, or begin to brainstorm.

This space will be facilitated by the Creative Arts Officers Liv and Emily – who will assist you during the awkward introductions stage, provide provocations for the week if we’re all stuck on what to do, and above all, create a space that is welcoming to all regardless of skill level, disciplines and interests.

The online collective meetings can be joined with PC, Mac, iOS or Android here.

In week 1 of Semester 2 (Friday 7th August) look out for Art Journaling Your Stories, a Creative Arts collective presented in collaboration with the UMSU disabilities department. This event can be joined using the same zoom link as above!

The CREATIVE ARTS COLLECTIVE is back for Semester 2. We look forward to meeting you!
