ARTSIDEOUT is a large-scale, one-day, multi-disciplinary arts festival, that celebrates arts and culture at UTSC in both physical and conceptual spaces. Involving the widest range of students from different programs and backgrounds, the event celebrates creativity and culture at U of T Scarborough.
The festival showcases site-specific art installations, exhibitions, performances, concerts, musical acts and film screenings. By using non-traditional spaces to exhibit creative works, ARTSIDEOUT aims to reveal the potential that is inherent in everyday life and spaces at the U of T Scarborough campus.
ARTSIDEOUT is a result of wide-ranging collaboration between 12 student clubs, approximately 30 student organizers from different programs and disciplines, the SCSU and the Department of Humanities. It features the work of over 40 artists and performances by over 20 performers and groups.
By directly engaging with UTSC, ARTSIDEOUT aims to challenge familiar uses of space and form connections between the artistic practices of UTSC students and the campus community. Emphasizing multi-disciplinary collaborations, ARTSIDEOUT engages creativity and stimulates positive energy, by transforming the UTSC venue into a communal art space.
OUR VISION: Collected Stories 2017
Collected Stories will focus on exploring the complexities of historical and contemporary Canadian identities. By encouraging the creation of multidisciplinary art works, the festival will cultivate rich and diverse narratives found within our communities. This year, we invite artists, storytellers, students, and everyone who calls Toronto and Scarborough home to unite in the reflection and celebration of our journeys.
