Celebrate the launch of the new School of Creative Arts at the University of the Fraser Valley.

The University of the Fraser Valley is excited to announce that the Theatre, Visual Arts, Art History and Media Arts Departments have united to form the School of Creative Arts (SoCA), and will be hosting a launch party to celebrate the dynamic and interdisciplinary learning opportunities that SoCA has to offer. By combining digital technologies and media with traditional art practices and performance, SoCA aims to serve as a cultural hub and centre of creative innovation in the Fraser Valley.

Join us and participate in a free interactive evening offering art and performance lessons led by UFV faculty members.

Some of the lessons that will be offered are beginner drawing, printmaking, stage fighting, media art, and art history, among many others.

Celebrate with community members while enjoying UFV Alumni wine and catering by Frankie’s Italian Kitchen & Bar. This event also features a gallery exhibition and DJ music by CIVL Radio.

All ages welcome. UFV Alumni wine will be served and due to the nature of the event, all entrants to the tent will be required to provide ID.
