POP Symposium

Redefining Emergence

Rialto Hall



Gratuit | Free


Co-présenté avec engAGE: Concordia’s Centre for Research on Aging This panel discussion will bring together academics and artists entering their field at a later stage in life to reconceptualize the idea of artistic “emergence”. Older emerging artists face many barriers accessing opportunities for their work: funding for emerging artists often requires artists to be under a certain age, and many older artists also find themselves excluded from the social support of their peers due to age-differences. How can we redefine emergence to include artists at all stages of life?
