What is the Arts Atlantic Symposium?
The Arts Atlantic Symposium is a multi-day conference and festival that will celebrate the tenacity and creativity of professional artists, and will explore the unique challenges they face in the Atlantic region. This conference aims to dispel myths — and perhaps create some new mythology — as well as investigate the past, present, and future of art born out of the Atlantic provinces. The programming of the three-day conference is designed to build connections among artists of all disciplines, develop new audiences, and revel in the perspective of the Atlantic region’s art.
