We will explore the social, community, cultural and economic currency of art. How art influences diverse communities, how art affects youth and seniors, reaction from new immigrants, opportunities and community bonds , building social equity, improving overall cultural quotient of the citizens and last but not least the economic impact.

So is art just a means of income or is it a statement? What is the Currency of Art?

The Currency of Art conference will feature speakers from across Ontario speaking about community art, and why art is good for economy, society and public sphere.
