LA FAAS is back!
June 14–17, 2023
Kathleen Street, Sudbury
For its 7th edition, the Sudbury Alternative Art Fair (FAAS 7 / Foire D’Art Alternatif de Sudbury) takes place on Kathleen Street in the Donovan neighbourhood. Under the theme of neighboUrhood, some twenty artists will create original installations, artworks and performances in unusual locations. With a schedule and map in hand, you are invited to stroll down Kathleen Street all week to follow the evolution of the pieces. FAAS 7 concludes with a festive vernissage of the installations and a presentation of the performances. Free and open to all.
The Donovan is home to many ethnocultural, marginalized groups, as well as a new wave of communities who have come to call it home. With the theme of neighbourhood, it is a great opportunity to rally a community of proximity, to be in solidarity with the changes it is facing and to highlight its considerable contribution. Inspired by the desire to create a place for discussion and exchange and to and to propose activities of popular reappropriation, this art fair aims to shed light on the logics of our urban and economic systems.
Every two years since 2008, la FAAS has celebrated a public space in the nickel city’s downtown. Invited artists are challenged to complete new works over the course of the festival and according to each edition’s concept and theme.
