SYMPOSIUM ON ART & SOCIAL INNOVATION
TORONTO, JUNE 11-12, 2015
Creative Catalyst brings together Canadian artists, designers, researchers, industry, and community members in discussion on how arts and culture catalyzes social innovation.
In the face of “wicked” social problems, radical innovation is required to change perspective and shift culture. Artists and creatives are at the forefront of communicating social change, using artistic expression and creative practice to open up a space for critical reflection, dialogue, and idea generation.
Creative Catalyst features an opening night reception on June 11, keynotes by Edward Burtynsky with Judith Marcuse, Stephen Duncombe and Steve Lambert from the Center for Artistic Activism, an interactive art installation by Madeleine Co. & The Bodhi Collective, and catered meals.
