Labrador Creative Arts Festival
“Vision” is the theme of this years Labrador Creative Arts Festival! It was a vision of collaboration, sharing of ideas and bringing together communities that inspired the founders of the festival to use the arts as a lens through which to view the world.
That vision is once again activated in this festival as we celebrate the increased interest in seeing the world through multiple lenses, particularly through the world view of Indigenous artists and of youth, groups whose voice can be better heard when their vision is increasingly represented.
Workshops in all disciplines that encourage participants to identify their own visions, and to treat the literal and figurative meaning of the term, will contribute to the festival’s aim of seeing our own world more clearly, and sharing that view with others.
When children are given the opportunity to create and celebrate their communities, culture and their creativity they are more than dreamers: they are visionaries.
