art matters

Art Matters involves hundreds. While many of these opportunities are only offered to Concordia undergraduate students, the invitation to volunteer is warmly extended beyond our walls.


Art Matters: Call for Coordinators
Art Matters is Concordia’s Fine Arts festival that has created platforms for undergraduate artists studying at the university since 2000. Taking place in March every year, Art Matters hosts exhibitions and events across Montreal.

Art Matters seeks 3 dynamic students to coordinate the 2017-18 festival. While coordinating administration, exhibitions, and outreach respectively, all 3 positions commit to a year of team-building where effective communication and critical thinking are at the forefront. As challenging as it is rewarding, coordinating Art Matters offers students a holistic experience of working in a non-profit arts environment.

Board of Directors

A non-profit organization, the festival is overseen by a board of directors that makes sure things are running smoothly. The board works with the coordinating team to shape the festival, provide input, and observe by-laws. The board also has the opportunity to take the lead with some of the special events Art Matters has up its sleeve, including the festival Speaker Series.
In order to join our board, stay tuned for our upcoming Annual General Meeting in April 2017.
