All Aboard! Train of Thought will pull into the VIA Rail Canada Winnipeg Train Station on May 21, bringing artists and youth from across Canada to participate in ACI Manitoba’s Artists + Community Symposium along their cross-country journey. Don’t miss Manitoba’s most fun and informative gathering for community members and artists working together for social change through the arts!
Everyone is welcome! Talk about today’s issues, like what Winnipeg artists are doing to address racism, crime, poverty and generational differences through the power of the arts; or how newcomers, settlers and Indigenous people get along in Canada. Explore hidden pasts and imagine our collective future. Understand why community-engaged arts propels transformation.
Celebrate and share knowledge with artistic directors, actors, film makers, writers, dancers, visual artists, puppeteers, musicians, photographers, painters, sculptors, Indigenous artists, youth and elders, environmental activists, peace makers, poets, community developers, farmers, fine crafters, storytellers, and extraordinary arts organizations who are leading the way in community-engaged arts.
