About Art Volt

Art Volt is a platform containing a wide array of programs aimed at supporting recent Fine Arts alumni. Art Volt focuses on initiatives and tools to better equip Concordia’s creative practitioners as they transition out of their academic degree and embark on new projects. The objective is to reinforce the knowledge and practices gained by students during their degree, while providing real-world experiences and connections they can build on in their personal and professional lives.

The Collection is here!

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.
