ARTIST HUB

About the Artist Hub

Each year, Ocean Week Canada features artist-led talks, creative community workshops, and immersive experiences in all regions: Atlantic, Great Lakes / St. Lawrence, Inland, Pacific, Inuit Nunangat, and Western Arctic.

With core values of inclusivity and accessibility, selected Ocean Week Canada artists / animators seek to connect with broad audiences of all ages and demographics to participate in a variety of art experiences: material installations, audio installations, light projections, performances, spectator interactions, digital exhibits, crowd-source public space galleries, community talks, art hives, and field trips.

These artist-led creations and activities flow into the national program of Ocean Week Canada events every June.

Curator’s Notebook

It is imperative that all of us— each with our unique imprint of cultural knowledge, acquired skills and lived experience – combine our energy to address collectively the urgent issues of our time. Watch this space as I collect and share innovative art practices, interdisciplinary discussions, studio visits, and makerspace events. 

– Dr. Melissa Rombout
