Powwow Country: Works Art and Design Festival, June 21-July 3, 2012 Edmonton
Works Art and Design Festival,
June 21-July 3, 2012
From the summer solstice to the beginning of July, Edmonton’s downtown is electrified with energy as the Works Art and Design Festival showcases the work of Indigeneity, a Calgary-based Aboriginal artist collective. The Canadian Aboriginal Artist program was launched in 2009 with support from the Canada Council for the Arts and has become a popular attraction of the event. The contemporary works are featured in various mediums and address the issues facing Canadian Aboriginal people today and historically. Indigeneity is known for its experimental and innovative practices of its artists, supporting radical artwork and thinking towards contemporary Indigenous art and new media through diverse disciplines. Although Sir Winston Churchill Square is the core facility of the festival, more than 200,000 visitors during the 13-day festival will find venues and displays throughout the city centre and which features ENERGY II:COLLABORATION! as its theme. Also on Sir Winston Churchill Square in the Street Market, The Works has venues for artists, designers, artisans and craftspeople to browse through and food vendors. This year marks 27 as the largest free outdoor Art and Design Festival in North America.
