ABOUT THE ECO ART & MEDIA FESTIVAL

Every spring since 1995, the Wild Garden Media Centre based in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University has coordinated the Eco Art & Media Festival, a multi-day festival to celebrate and share diverse forms of creative expression. With the goal of inspiring public discussion, engagement and dialogue around an environmental/social theme, various means of expression are incorporated, including visual arts, dramatic art, forums, film/video/new media, workshops, food, music, dance, outreach, spoken word, storytelling etc.

As a campus-wide and community event, the Eco Art & Media Festival is co-sponsored with other York University faculties and departments, as well as community organizations that share our vision of community art for education and social change.

The 15th annual Eco-Art and Media Festival falls on the eve of York’s 50th birthday. We are reminded that York’s history extends beyond recent events into a past that has shaped how we experience the University today. The Eco-Art and Media Festival is proud to provide artists and activists in the York community with the opportunity to express unresolved feelings and thoughts, to celebrate their successes and to come together as a community. Please join us as we explore
the theme,

"MOVING THROUGH: Expressions of Struggle, Healing and Hope"

The Wild Garden Media Centre team, as part of the Faculty of Environmental Studies, is committed to creating a sustainable festival that minimizes our environmental impact at every stage of the planning and execution process, while maximizing the social impact for all participants including volunteers, artists, attendees and members of the York University community.
