Spur Public Fellow
For 2017 in select cities and launching at Spur Winnipeg the Public Fellow program will be transformed into the Canada 150 Scholars-in-Residence Program. There is also a parallel Artists-in-Residence Program.
Throughout the festival, our volunteers will circulate Spur’s Canada150 postcards, where attendees can anonymously share how they identify as/what they celebrate about being Canadian.
After the festival closes, all reflections gathered will then be interpreted by local scholars and artists in residence, culminating in an online gallery.
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between The Spur Festival, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
