Caravane des arts


The project



Caravane des arts is a project aiming at connecting communities to art throughout BC. By sending artists in residency, we are supporting the artistic vitality. 5 artists of different fields were sent together for a full month, in 4 different cities/regions during April 2016.

These artists are:
- a stage performer / producer / storyteller
- a visual artist
- a writter / storyteller
- a handcraft artist
- a danser /choregraph / circus artist

Working together, they have met local communities to animate workshops, discussion panels, shows and more to highlight their art field.
