AVANT CANADA
Artists, Prophets, and Revolutionaries

EVENTS HAPPENING AT
Rodman Hall Arts Centre + Niagara Artists Centre
Wednesday 5 November – Friday 7 November

More than 85 national and international avant-gardists will descend upon Brock and St. Catharines next week for Avant Canada, a conference on the avant-garde in Canada.

The conference is the 28th installment of the Two Days of Canada conference at Brock University — the oldest Canadian studies conference of its kind.

The two-day conference takes place Nov. 5 and 6 at the University’s Rodman Hall Arts Centre in downtown St. Catharines and will be followed by a one-day symposium on Canadian poet bpNichol at the Niagara Artists Centre (NAC) on Nov. 7.

Avant Canada will feature events every evening that are free and open to the public.

• A keynote talk by Lee Maracle, entitled “Two Days of Canada, 53,785 Days of Colonialism” at Rodman Hall on Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. Maracle is an instructor at the Centre for Indigenous Theatre in Toronto and was recently presented with a 2014 Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.

• A screening and artists talk on the Indigenous Futurist mini-series TimeTraveller by digital First Nations artist Skawennati at the Niagara Artists Centre on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m.

• Friday’s (Nov. 7) symposium on poet bpNichol includes a creative evening of poetry at the Niagara Artists Company at 7:30 p.m. Twelve poets will recite works inspired by Nichol. And it will also feature a digital interactive and real-time Twitter performance by writers from around the world. The event will crescendo with DJ Marinko‘s Dance Your Cares Away finale: an a/v dance party set featuring FRAGGLE ROCK.
