TWU hosts 2nd Annual Arts Expo

High school students can get up close and personal with artists and professors at TWU’s Arts Expo. The event for students runs October 31st from 9:00am to 2:00pm.

On Friday October 31st from 9 am to 2 pm, Trinity Western University's Faculty of Professional Studies and Performing Arts (FPSPA) is hosting an Arts Expo, welcoming over 100 high school students from the Langley area to participate in workshops in variety of fields. From writing and scoring music for film and video games, viewing a professional art show and creating their own art work to attending theatre, creative writing and game design workshops, grade 11 and 12 students will engage the arts with FPSPA faculty and senior students.

"Arts Expo is a gift to high school students in the Lower Mainland," says FPSPA Dean Dr. David Squires. "It is an opportunity for students interested in the arts to work closely with professors and university students in workshops on various aspects of their artistic craft. It's our way of opening our doors and inviting young people onto campus to have some fun with the arts for a day," he says.

All workshops are free of charge with lunch and snacks provided. The Arts Expo is open to any student in grade 11 or 12. High school teachers or students interested in registering for a workshop, or for more event information, are encouraged to contact Carole Davis at 604-513-2036 or email
