Montreal artists are invited to join the growing collaboration of the Occupy Arts Committee, a gathering of artists from all disciplines who want to support Occupy Montreal with creative practice.

According to organizers, this meeting will be a creation workshop to start imagining, painting & drawing … Artists are encouraged to bring material, art supplies, paint & brushes, etc…. and to think YELLOW.

March 17, 2012 Café l’Artère, 7000 ave. Du Parc (métro Parc). 14h / 2pm

In the two previous meetings, participants engaged in wide-ranging discussions about:

* how creative actions can help promote the Occupy ideas;
* the need for better, bigger, livelier visuals;
* how to make the general public part of performances;
* how to occupy other public space with a critical arts presence;
* reclaiming the commons with bright, colourful, noisy processionals;
* how the arts can be used to raise public awareness of the issues;
* and more.

The Arts Committee says that all theatre artists, allies and creative peeps are welcome. For more information contact either Johanne Chagnon or Norman Nawrocki: rhythm[at]nothingness[dot]org
