We finished our first year of collective programming

Crowd at Inside/Out

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the Edge City Cultural Event Series

SOFIA/c’s first year of programming wrapped up on Aug. 23 at the end of its summer symposium, Inside/Out: Convergences of practice and community.

Over the course of 18 months, in addition to the full-day artist symposium, we also held a poetry reading, film night, and a mobile text art piece. Check out the archive for details and photos of these events.

Stay tuned for our upcoming 2014/15 programming, which will explore the theme of Duality, in the weeks and months to come.

Take the 96 NEWTON EXCH B-LINE to Poets in Conversation


Looks like Surrey’s new 96 B-Line will go right past the Newton Cultural Centre from Surrey Central Skytrain Station. Why not plan to take this new route to SOFIA/c’s Poets in Conversation event? It will be an evening of firsts for all.
