Presented in conjunction with the 8th edition of the M:ST Festival, a meeting of the National Performance Art Presenters will take place in Calgary, Alberta on October 25-26. This ground-breaking retreat assembles representatives of organizations, each dedicated to the promotion and exhibition of performance art across Canada. Speaking with a unified voice, representatives are better able to demonstrate that performance art has a long history in visual art and is an important component of visual culture.

Presented with the support of the Canada Council and the Calgary Foundation.
