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.
