Event Description

How do artists continue to create during a pandemic? How do you make art it is hard to focus and there is a lack of support? As an emerging artist, how do you push forward to grow your career when everything has changed and nothing seems stable?

In this three-part program in joint collaboration between the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and the Legacy Art Gallery, emerging artists will come together with facilitator K.P. Denis, three mentoring artists (Kemi Craig, Estraven Lupino-Smith, and Ghinwa Yassine) and the other participants to discuss the effect the pandemic has had on their artistic practice. Together we will grieve the losses we’ve experienced, discuss methods of adapting, and share visions for a new creative future.

This free program will take place over Zoom and consist of three sessions on Sunday, October 4, 11, and 18 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Participants are expected to attend all three sessions. Register is required through Google Forms, with participation limited. Please contact either Regan Shrumm, Assistant Curator at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, at [email protected] or Amy Smith, BCAC Education and Public Programs Intern at the Legacy Art Gallery, at [email protected] for questions or concerns.

-Are an emerging artist in Victoria who lost opportunities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic?
-Are looking for new ways to share your art and network with other artists in light of these lost opportunities?
-Are trying to find a group of individuals to find solitude in going through the same emotions of grief and uncertainty?
-Are needing some hope of moving forward with their art practice in these trying times?
