Print. Party. Repeat.

This September 29th, SNAP is taking art to the streets!

In partnership with Alberta Culture Days and Edmonton’s free all-night art festival, Nuit Blanche, SNAP’s BLOCKOUT event will feature exciting print-on-demand activities and a Night Market.

For maximum spectacle, SNAP is steamroller printing massive woodblocks carved by specially commissioned artists, community groups, and visitors. BLOCKOUT artists are working with the theme “City Skies,” celebrating the urban environment as a space of community gathering and collective wonder.

Purchase a big print or head inside to try letterpress printing from blocks carved by emerging artists. Go home with something special from SNAP’s Night Market or get a print hot off the press! Come see SNAP for yourself and meet the artists who make up one of Edmonton’s most exciting artist-run centres.

This event is free and open to the public. SNAP will be accepting donations.

BLOCKOUT is an Alberta Culture Days event supported by the Government of Alberta.

 

Alberta’s biggest cultural party is here! Alberta Culture Days is a celebration of arts, heritage, diversity, and community spirit – everything that shows what makes Alberta one of the best places to live in the country.  I encourage everyone to check out Culture Days, try something new, learn more about their communities and realize how unique and creative Alberta is.”  — Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism
