Alberta Public Art Network Annual Summit


Plan to join the Edmonton Arts Council from September 11-13, for the 2018 APAN Summit, Public Art – It’s Complicated, an exploration of the many issues and trends affecting the public art field.

The Summit will take place at the Matrix Hotel in downtown Edmonton, steps away from the Legislature Building grounds, cafes, restaurants, and public art.

The event promises to be two days of conviviality, workshops and presentations, networking, and exploration.

Summit Program

Full details are yet to be finalized,  but we are excited to announce that Canadian artist and educator Justin Langlois is our Keynote Speaker, while Edmonton artists Jason Gondziola and Brooke Leifso will facilitate our “centrepiece” workshop -they will lead participants through a hands-on, experiential community art workshop that will address the theory and ethics of working with community.
