Category: arts 30

Saint John’s contemporary arts festival THIRD SHIFT will take place August 19-21 in the city’s Uptown.

Saint John’s contemporary arts festival THIRD SHIFT returns to Uptown Saint John in August.

The public is encouraged to join artists and organizers on August 19 from 7 p.m. to midnight to experience 17 artists and collaborative creators showcase installations and interactive works that explore topics such as climate change, dreams, personal histories, soundscapes, movement, and more.

There will also be a series of workshops running throughout the day on Saturday August 20 (details coming soon!) and a conversation series from 1-4 p.m. at the Imperial Theatre the following day. 

This year’s theme, peripheries, addresses the boundaries and limits one might experience, whether it be through their personal lives, or throughout the world around them. 

Participating artists include Alana Morouney, Daisy Graham and Chloe Lundrigan, Chris Donovan, Janice Wright Cheney & Matt Brown, Queen², Joy Wong, Sarah & Lorne Power, Lucy Koshan, Marie-Soleil Provençal, Marissa Sean Cruz, Ysabelle Vautour, and Jordan Hill. 

THIRD SHIFT is made possible in part through the generous support of Sculpture Saint John, Teen Resource Centre, From Harm to Harmony, Resonance New Music, and ACAP Saint John.

THIRD SHIFT: PERIPHERIES is proudly sponsored by 97.3 The Wave and Country 94.
