Kick off the 2021 Artist Salon Series with an online conversation led by Vancouver-based multidisciplinary artist, Kevin Fraser.
Kevin is the founder and director of Immigrant Lessons, an international multidisciplinary art collective/platform created to promote cultural pluralism utilizing dance, theatre, music, fashion, visual media, and visual design. He will share some of his own projects, as well as background on Immigrant Lessons, to offer insight and tips for artists on how to work collectively and incorporate many different art forms into their projects. We will also discuss the difficulties of performing during pandemic times, and how his art practice has adapted during this time.
Q & A session with participants will follow the artist presentation.
