Victoria – The ProArt Alliance of Greater Victoria is pleased to host Kelly Hill of Hill Strategies Research Inc for a presentation and discussion of the recent report on the Demographic Diversity of Artists in Canada based on 2016 census data. A response to the report will be provided by France Trépanier and Chris Creighton-Kelly, Co-Directors of Primary Colours/Couleurs primaires, followed by a question and answer period.

This research highlights specific demographic categories including Indigenous and Racialized artists, providing a detailed portrait of current circumstances facing many practicing artists. Research of this type has the ability to inform and influence decisions made by public policy makers. Engagement and response is crucial to the reality that this research makes visible. It contributes to our collective understanding of what this content reveals about the Canadian art systems and how it can be used to mobilize or strengthen support for the arts and culture sector. This Research & Response event is intended to engage with current Diversity of Artists in Canada research and explore its relevance to the contemporary art context.

This event has been made possible through an award to the ProArt Alliance of one of four no-fee presentations by Hill Strategies as part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series selected and funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and Hill Strategies Research.
