Visiting Artist Program

Concordia's Visiting Artist Program brings in diverse artists and designers to share their knowledge, unique vision, and the work they've done in our community. Artists contribute to the Visiting Artist Program in a variety of ways: 

  • Exhibiting their work
  • Public artist talks
  • Conducting workshops or demonstrations of technique
  • Individual critiques and discussions with students

All are welcome to attend exhibitions and public talks.
