Industrial Fabric3:  Festival of the Arts
Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts
March - April 2013



The third Festival of the Arts Industrial Fabric3 showcases the remarkable talents of students enrolled in the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts will be held March - April 2013. This two month festival signals that time of year when students who have been preparing individually and collectively will bring their in-class, independent or studio projects to fruition. In the spirit of openness and mutual generosity, we invite you to celebrate their achievements on stage, in studios and galleries, and at regional venues.

As part of the culminating activities that signal the end of the academic year Industrial Fabric3 offers a dynamic range of creative events open to the University and community at large from theatre to musical performances to art exhibitions.  Enjoy original student-written and performed plays produced as part of the Department of Dramatic Arts' Gimme 2 or One Acts Festival, and a production by fourth-year students called An Acre of Time by Jason Sherman; a rich selection of concerts from the Department of Music including its Tuesday Music@Noon series, Student Recitals, the ENCORE! Professional Concert Series, the VIVA VOCE! Choral Series, and the University Wind Ensemble; exhibitions from the students of the Department of Visual Arts reflecting their achievements in intermedia, and a fourth-year honours exhibition hosted by Rodman Hall Art Centre. 

"Industrial Fabric3 represents the creative thread that binds students in common effort, to perfect and bring their creativity to audiences both large and small, on and off campus.  It promises to deliver over the course of two months a rich plethora of collective and individual talent mentored under the guise of our tremendous faculty and staff. This continues to be a testimony to the strength of our academic programs – where else can one find such brilliant vitality and collaboration that manifests itself from year to year with such vision, energy and dedication?" states Derek Knight, Director of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.

The Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, part of the Faculty of Humanities at Brock University, is comprised of the Departments of Dramatic Arts (DART) , Music (MUSI), and Visual Arts (VISA) , and the Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture (cSTAC).
