ARTIST HUB

About the Artist Hub

From June through September 2022, Ocean Week Canada and the Ocean Festival will present artist-led talks, creative community workshops, and immersive experiences in all regions: Atlantic, St. Lawrence, Great Lakes, Inland, Pacific, Inuit Nunangat, and Western Arctic.

Key themes such as the precarity of ocean health, conserving marine life, and connecting the flows of human impact to our local waters and the marine world will be explored through art installations, artist performances, and community maker events.

With core values of inclusivity and accessibility, selected Ocean Week Canada and Ocean Festival artists / animators will connect with broad audiences of all ages and demographics to participate in a variety of art experiences: material installation, audio installation, light projection, performance, spectator interaction, digital exhibit, crowd-source public space gallery, community talk, art hive, field trip, and floating classroom.

These artist-led creations and activities will be incorporated into the national program of Ocean Week Canada and Ocean Festival events from June to September.

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
