From Vision to Execution: The Artist’s Roadmap to the Future

What is the role of the artist in a modern, connected society? Does art reflect the culture, or shape it?

And what about sustainability? Do the old forms still work, or is there a new movement rising?

Independent, untrained artists are capturing the public’s attention and shaping the social discourse. Why? And how is this happening?

An evening with artist, writer and speaker Aaron Paquette will shed light on these questions as he walks with you through this exciting new world where technology, social change, and humour converge. You will be challenged to re-evaluate your perceptions of what art is in the 21st century and where it is taking us on the uncertain road ahead, and why that’s a very good thing.
