The Greenlite Arts Festival exists at the intersection of the arts and the environment. Our goal is to nurture creativity at the University of Calgary while also challenging participants to think critically about our society’s relationship with the environment. We aim to do this by provided structured activities where anyone can explore different facets of creativity and providing all the tools necessary to make it as accessible as possible. All of our events also aim to be zero waste.
The theme of Greenlite this year is FOOTPRINTS. Footprints are what we leave behind when we travel forward. Are we satisfied with the footprints we leave behind? What is our ecological footprint? How do we move forward while still heeding what we leave behind? minimizing the size of our footprints? What sorts of impacts do we leave on the environment, physical or otherwise? And how long will these footprints last? These are just some of the questions which we want participants to think about this year. WHAT DO FOOTPRINTS MEAN TO YOU?
Join us for many activities we have as a part of the festival!
First – a 48-Hour Crash Course with Juan Delgado. Juan is an NUTV alumni, and a visiting filmmaker who will make sure you have what you need to succeed during our challenge.
Then you’ll be ready to partake in the 48-Hour Eco Film Challenge (singles welcome to sign up and be placed on a team). Become a part of the solution by contributing to a sustainable future (Everyone is welcome to participate).
