Surround yourself
with art

The Art Volt Collection (AVC) is a not-for-profit artwork rental and sales service at Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts. The AVC helps recent alumni launch their career by showcasing their work, connecting them with art patrons and providing them compensation for their creative productions by introducing them to the commercial market.

Support emerging artists

Art Volt is a platform containing a wide array of programs aimed at supporting recent Fine Arts alumni. The initiative focusses on tools to better equip Concordia’s creative practitioners as they transition out of their academic degree, while providing real-world experiences and connections they can build on in their personal and professional lives.
