In an age where anyone with a computer and an Internet connection can make themselves known, how do artists go about making work that reflects the community in which it is created? How do artists create a signal amidst the noise of popular culture? Capturing the Scene brings together panelists including Ellen Close, Terry Rock, Sandra Laronde and Candace Elder to discuss the creation of art in Calgary, specifically art that speaks to the social and built environment of the city itself. Moderated by Sarah Iley, Manager of Culture at City of Calgary.

Spur is a national festival of politics, art and ideas and is a catalyst for change in Canada.

Through nationally relevant and locally nuanced discussions, presentations and performances, the festival seeks to spur its participants to action on issues affecting Canadians. Feisty, multi-partisan, forward-looking, and solution-driven, this national railway of ideas will provide Canada with vital new cultural infrastructure for the 21st century.

Founded in 2013, the festival has already grown from three to five Canadian cities, with plans for further expansion across the country. Produced by the Literary Review of Canada in partnership with Diaspora Dialogues, Spur prides itself on its community partnerships, cultural connections and a focus on accessibility and diversity.
