Event description

Description

CURRENT is a multidisciplinary, intersectional, music and electronic art symposium working with female identified and non-binary artists in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest. The first iteration of the project will be a 3-day, music and arts showcase featuring events, panels, youth mentorships, and workshops, which will take place July 28th-30th, 2017 in Vancouver, Canada.

The goal of this symposium is to foster and disseminate feminist content through the cross-pollination of ideas, and intergenerational knowledge sharing. By offering free, public, all ages panels and workshops, we wish to cultivate growth within the local community, and create a more equal landscape within the growing Electronic Arts ecology.
