The Khyber Centre for the Arts collaborated with the 100in1Day Halifax event to showcase the culture of artist-run-centres, as well as allow the Khyber community to share their work and/or practice with a larger, more accessible audience by way of the Halifax Commons.
At a podium by the Halifax Commons Fountain, Artists Talk Publicly gave Khyber members and non-members the opportunity to speak casually or formally about topics related to art and/or being an artist. Audiences were welcome to come and go as they please, and the group was comprised of members of the arts community and/or interested passerbys.
Topics included: why they make art, what their art practice is about, struggles in art making, ideas they want to work on, ask for community input on art works, address issues they find in the art world/art life, etc.
