Outside the Box

The Nelson & District Arts Council is proud to present the first-ever installment of Outside the Box, a project which wires artists from across disciplines together to create cutting-edge interdisciplinary work.

Each artistic “pod” is composed of artists from a wide range of disciplines. They are not given any prompts or constraints. Over the course of several sessions, the pods develop their work into a piece that can be professionally filmed.

Tackling subjects from the tedium of the workplace to the vastness of the universe, each project has emerged unique, poignant, and potent. The Outside the Box project culminates in a showcase video and an artist talk, which will live stream on Sunday, January 23, at 7 pm on Facebook and YouTube.
