w.a.v.e.s Festival 2014 Celebrates Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies and Sculptures
Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies and Sculptures (w.a.v.e.s.) is a brand new two-day festival connecting communities through waves of art, culture and technology in the Windsor Sculpture Park during Culture Days, September 26-27, 2014.
Hosted by the City of Windsor’s Cultural Affairs Department in partnership with the Arts Council of Windsor & Region, WEtech Alliance, Hackforge Windsor, Harvesting the FAM, The Art Gallery of Windsor and Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, the festival will showcase local and visiting artists who will present their innovative wave-length creations from 4 p.m.to 11 p.m. each day.
Projects were selected through an open call to local, emerging and national acts inviting individuals and organizations to be inspired by the theme of “waves” in sound, light, movement or otherwise. The application asked for “the unexpected” and over 20 projects have been selected to animate the park throughout the day and illuminate the night, including solar and kinetic-powered installations.
A special extension of Harvesting the FAM will provide stage entertainment to festival goers throughout the day. Harvesting The FAM is Windsor’s largest independent inter-arts festival, designed for the promotion and development of film, fashion, artistic and musical talents. Each night at 10 p.m., special performances will capture the audience in mesmerizing audiovisual performances from Kero & Annie Hall on Friday and The Noise Border Ensemble on Saturday.
All Windsor Sculpture Park festival programming and events are free to the public.
This event is rain or shine. Festival goers are encouraged to illuminate their umbrellas and their outfits!
