The National Forum on Social Art is an event with unconventional activities, sometimes comical, which aims to transfer knowledge in the sectors of intervention through art and artistic intervention, from a social development perspective. Special attention is given to the context of youth homelessness, a particularly vulnerable and growing population. The forum wants to help connect the different actors of the many sectors of activity concerned by art as a tool for social change (the artistic community, research, government institutions and community organizations). In an ideal world, the event will contribute to the emergence of new arts intervention projects and artistic intervention projects across Canada, thus enabling the entire population, particularly the most vulnerable populations, to benefit from the positive impacts of the artistic experience.

Objectives

Have a better comprehension of what is being done here and elsewhere in social art

Raise awareness of art as an intervention tool

Create a place for reflection and meeting between different actors

Develop collective expertise in social art
