The York Region Arts Council is excited to be hosting the YRAC Members Social; a networking evening for our YRAC members and past program participants during Global Entrepreneurship Week! Join us for an evening of food, drinks, and connections with other local artists in York Region. This is a free social event for artists to meet one another and to get to know each other in the community a little more. YRAC wishes to promote community engagement, collaboration between artists, and lasting connections. We want to recognize and appreciate the wonderful artists and entrepreneurs we have in our art community and those who have graduated from our programs. We are so excited to host like-minded artists and creatives for this social event.

What is Global Entrepreneurship Week?

It’s a week to celebrate the success and work of leaders and creators who develop innovative ideas and startups to better our economy and impact within our communities. Global Entrepreneurship Week inspires people locally, nationally, and globally to recognize our entrepreneurs and to inspire others to create and innovate new potential ideas.

Please note light refreshments and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided, the menu and bar are available for attendees to purchase additional items as they would like.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Ideas Digital Forum 2018

12 October 2018 9:30am-4pm
The Robert Mclaughlin Gallery Ideas Digital Forum

Two days of engaging conversations between artists, curators, digital specialists, and scholars dedicated to thinking critically and collectively about the future of digital technology, digital art and public art galleries. 

Guided by thought-leaders from Berlin, England, and across Canada, participants and presenters will come together to discuss the opportunities and obstacles that digital technologies brings with it, and what pathway it puts forth for the future of the Public Art Galleries.

As much as the interaction between the Public Art Gallery as the site of engagement with these digital technologies, the symposium will collaboratively find answers for some of the medium’s more precarious questions: how it will it affect artists’ practices; how will it be curated; collected; written about; archived; and engaged.
