ARTASIA 2018: Glocal #HereWeArt

Saturday, September 15 – Sunday, September 16, 2018, 12 – 6 pm  
Come experience Artasia Exhibits and Activities at the Supercrawl Family Zone: York Boulevard & James North, Hamilton, ON

An interactive installation featuring integrated sculptural and digital artwork celebrating the artistic and civic achievements of children and youth.

Place pins orbit around a large central place pin under the York Boulevard bridge. Each satellite pin marks the coordinates for an augmented reality portal, housing kids’ artistic visions.

Neighbourhood “story boxes” are accessed via a smartphone app developed in partnership with a team at McMaster University.

The central  place pin anchors a tactile and virtual mapping activity, encouraging guests to share their own stories and dreams.

As part of CKA’s 3 year “glocal” initiative, #HereWeArt is the first of several arts-and-technology oriented programs, set to culminate in 2020 with an international focus on inclusion and belonging.

CKA invites you to join in and connect with Artasia participants globally! Follow us on instagramtwitter and be sure to tag your posts, photos and video with#HereWeArt and #Artasia all weekend long.
