Did you attend and witness the amazingness that is Arts & Drafts this past Thursday evening?

As presented by the University of Guelph’s clubs The English Students’ Society (TESS), the Fine Arts Network (FAN), and Kaleidoscope, the event was a huge success, yet again. Beginning in the fall of 2014, Arts & Drafts (formerly known as Stratastrophe) is one of the most anticipated campus events showcasing new and returning artists. This year was no different, with an amazing turn-out and talent alike.

Silence was packed wall to wall with people who appreciated the music, poetry, and video installations the event had to offer. The musicians included local talents Anna Weibe and Carlo Hildebrand, Ian Baine of Softside, and Graham Steinman and his Cedar Symphony.

For the poetry-lovers, they were beyond satisfied by Claire Wilcox, Ali McWhirter, Rachel Garcia, and the newcomer who certainly delivered, Shannon Scott. As the poets and musicians performed, their work was paired well with video backdrops. Such backdrops included works by Grace Esford, Leonard Walsh, Claudia Rick, Carolina Benitez and Sonali Menezes, as well as the groups Art Police for a sensory art-overload in the best way imaginable.

In a nutshell, with such unique and variety in artistic talents, 3$ drinks, free admission, and overall good community vibes, there was nothing not to love about this event.
