Ten Different Things

Written on September 5, 2017

We are delighted to be collaborating with the City of Vancouver Public Art Program and Living Labs at Emily Carr University of Art + Design on a unique new project in Vancouver.

Ten Different Things invites artists to create new works in the spirit of free inquiry at the intersection of public art, community engagement, and civic process. Projects will be temporary and take a variety of forms—events, installations, residencies, interventions—and will explore conditions of how culture is experienced in Vancouver or provoke new visions of art and civic life.

Ten Different Things engages ten critically-engaged artists to investigate the role of culture as a critical ingredient in the construct and vitality of the contemporary city. What propositions, provocations, concepts or visions do artists have for creating a public sphere that promotes cultural life? How can we create structures, processes or dynamics to produce new ways of living, working, interacting, or occupying the city? Where are the intersections in public life where artists can produce alternate outcomes?

Ten projects will be realized throughout 2017-2018. The initiative is curated by Kate Armstrong.

Ten Different Things is a follow up to the Imagination Zone, a space in Northeast False Creek activated by students in the 2016 SFU Semester at CityStudio program.

Visit the Ten Different Things website for more information and where to find the installations in 2018.
