  • Art Is Your Story

    ARTS IS YOUR STORY: taking stories to the streets

    In response to Stephen Harper's characterization of arts as only of interest to an elite group and not relevant to 'ordinary' Canadians, a group of Queen's University artists wants to demonstrate the prevalence and importance of arts in all our lives. At its very core, art is about the human experience. Art is about storytelling and we all have important stories to tell. We have a need to tell stories, but also we have a need to hear other people's stories.

  • Support for the Arts

    Design company Lisa Kiss Design is creating a series of 30 second video(s) for YouTube to promote the idea of voting for a party that values arts and culture in the upcoming Canadian election. We believe that the recent cuts to arts funding by Stephen Harper's Conservative government shows their lack of commitment to core Canadian values. If you feel the same, please consider participating in this project.
