Voice & Vision 2017

Sunday October 1st, 2017 6:30-9:00pm

An official Alberta Culture Days Celebration site! Supported by the Government of Alberta

Local artists and writers participate in Voice & Vision 2017!

Celebrate artistic inspiration with a free evening of new artworks, live readings, live music, artistic activities, refreshments, and door prizes!

Voice & Vision 2017 is collaborative project between visual artists and writers in the Airdrie community. In May 2017, 14 writers from the Airdrie Writer’s Group exchanged work with 14 local visual artists to gain inspiration. The visual artists and writers each created a response piece inspired by their partner’s work over the summer.

In conclusion of the project, a free celebration will be held at APL during Alberta Culture Days! Join us for an evening of literary and visual arts featuring artwork unveiling, author readings, live music by blues musician Mitch Belot, interactive artistic activities, refreshments, and door prizes! Authors and writers will be in attendance to share their inspirations!

About the Musician:

Mitch Belot entertains with his swampy storytelling style and modern rock flare. He hooks audiences with his powerful, smoky voice, and gets them on their feet by incorporating fast tempos and heavy grooves. The Mitch Belot Band has performed throughout Canada including at the NXNE festival in Toronto, Canadian Music Week, and Juno Fest, and have supported other Canadian bands such as Trooper, Michael Bernard Fitzgerald, and The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer. Hear his music at www.mitchbelot.com.
