ArtQuake is an art/music event held in the Greater Vancouver area and is focused on young artists who pursue their art and their passion.Often these artists do not receive the opportunity to impact their community or exhibit their art. ArtQuake provides these artists with a venue, a purpose, and an audience.
Why is ArtQuake important for the community?Too often we disregard our artistic abilities because we are afraid to venture out into the unknown. ArtQuake gives all artists from the ages of 13-29 an opportunity to explore their artistic passion and showcase their art to hundreds of people in the community. The objective is to have people (audience and artists) leave the event feeling as though art is an essential part of humanity and a skill that we all in some way or form possess.
They will leave knowing that young artists today are pursuing their passion and exploring the possibilities out there; rather than pushing their art to the side in fear that they will not succeed. The only way any change will occur on this planet and the only reason it has; is due to passionate people. Through bringing this message to light; the team behind ArtQuake hopes to inspire young people and their community to become passionate and apply that passion to make change.
