OBEY XII Opening Night (Art Bar events)
Thursday, May 30, 10:00 PM

Tickets & passes:

++ AFCOOP Projections Project ++
An interactive event presenting the final projects of Mamie Bell, Sarah Greenwood, Rajee Paña Jeji Shergill, Kayla Stevens and Cole Wood, the artists selected for the inaugural AFCOOP Live Projections Workshop series. This programme offered each artist involved free workshops, access to equipment and software, and mentorship with seasoned tech wizards over a three month period. We’re happy to be presenting these unique works and psyched to see what everyone’s dreamt up!

++ NSCAD Sound Collective ++
The NSCAD Sound Collective was founded in order to create a space to share audio, found sound, and knowledge with likeminded sound artists and musicians. The collective consists of a shifting group of students who like to sit and listen while eating chips in a dark brick-walled auditorium on Granville Street. Members of the collective will be lending strange waves to our opening night party, taking over the campus corridors surrounding the Khyber and Art Bar.
