2019 CAFAD Conference


University of Victoria, British Columbia

Thursday, October 10, 2019 to Friday, October 11, 2019

As host to the 2019 annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Fine Arts Deans, I warmly welcome you to the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Victoria. Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, the Faculty of Fine Arts plays a vital role in Victoria’s rich artistic and cultural communities. The Faculty is home to the School of Music and Departments of Theatre, Visual Arts, Art History & Visual Studies, and Creative Writing, interdisciplinary programs in film studies and interactive media, and multiple performance and exhibition venues. With its temperate climate and ocean setting, Victoria offers an ideal location for a fall conference.

- Susan Lewis, Dean, Faculty of Arts, University of Victoria
