Description

Soar Emerging Artist Festival, is a 5 day, multidisciplinary arts festival for young and emerging artists, May 31 – June 4, 2017. Soar fosters creative development by combining community-inspired ideas with administrative, promotional and facility support.

Soar Cabaret features three nights of cabaret style showcases during the festival. The work of emerging artists will be presented in the ATB Financial Community Room at Casa (a black box theatre with basic lighting and sound equipment). Audiences will enjoy a program each night of dance, film, visual art, theatre, music, spoken word, performance art, or a combination of any and all of the above. May 31, June 1 & June 3 at 7:00pm. Admission $10/per night, available at the door.

Soar Visual Arts Project - I Have Something Important to Tell You: A postcard to a friend I haven't met yet is a visual arts project that asks emerging artists aged 18 – 35 to push boundaries and stretch their practice. This year's project was a mail art collaboration with international participation. The postcards will be hanging in the Passage Gallery at Casa and in the downtown. A catalogue is being created. The artist reception takes place June 2 at 7:00pm.

Soar Symposium on June 3 & 4 will feature workshops, panel discussions and artist talks providing professional development opportunities. The Soar Symposium is open to all artists of any age and skill level, those interested in the arts and the general public. Two-day session pass is $25.
