Art for Impact is a volunteer-run organization established in 2008 that raises awareness and funds for humanitarian and environmental issues, both local and international, through interdiscplinary art events. Art for Impact aims to bring wider community support for the arts while promoting and celebrating art’s capacity for social change.

Art for Impact is seeking artists of all disciplines to perform in our ninth event will be taking place on December 8th at the Russian Hall in East Vancouver. All proceeds from the evening will benefit Instruments of Change and their “Women Rock!” program, a 12-week project for women in the BC prison system to gain self-empowerment through learning to play rock instruments, forming bands, managing gear and writing songs.

Entitled, Ou(x)po, the show will explore the potential found within creative constraints.

Thus, we are asking artists to define their own creative constraints.

Upon acceptance, we will provide each artist/group with spatial and temporal constraints. Ou(x)po will be a gallery-style event where audience members will be encouraged to explore the venue and discover the multiple performances that are occurring simultaneously.

Thank you. and we greatly look forward to hearing from you!
The AFI Team — Natalie, Anna, Alisa, Andrew and Kevin
