waves Festival 2016

w.a.v.e.s. Festival returns to celebrate Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies and Sculptures by combining art, culture and technology at the Windsor Sculpture Park during Culture Days, September 30 and October 1, 2016.

Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies and Sculptures (w.a.v.e.s.) is a two-day festival 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 are 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 projects are then selected to animate the park throughout the day and illuminate the night, including solar and kinetic-powered installations.

After the sunsets, prepare to see the sculpture park light up like never before.

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!
