Event Details

The 2018 Emergence Symposium will kick off on November 21, 2018 at Humber CollegeWith four days of community arts activations and a full-day conference, Emergence Symposium will convene over 150 community engaged arts practitioners, policy makers and community leaders for reciprocal knowledge exchange, leadership development, creative self-reflection, mentorship and cross sectoral collaborations and critical discussions surrounding the theme of Arts and Equity. This large-scale symposium will build on the equity dialogue which Neighbourhood Arts Network has explored since its foundation in 2010. 

Toronto Arts Foundation's Neighourhood Arts Network invite you to join us in creating an inspirational full day gathering in conjunction with four days of community activations. Celebrate, nurture and participate in unique leadership development opportunities using community engaged arts as the spring board to explore important work and issues together.

Equity is a broad topic that can encompass many themes of practice. Your efforts to address societal issues, make positive change, and create inclusive space in your work are vital to the long-term health of all the communities we live, work and create in!

Emergence is made possible thanks to the support of TD Bank Group and Humber's Centre for Entrenership.
