Random Acts of Culture is an initiative that blurs the line between audience and performer by bringing art out of galleries and theatres and engaging the public in spontaneous creation or enjoyment of art. Random Acts are often participatory, temporary, unexpected, engaging, amusing, and occur in unusual spaces. Random Acts of Culture not only encourages the audience to look at art in a different way, it influences and enriches the artists’ daily practices as they get to explore and experiment with using different materials in new environments.
For the past two years, we have focused on bringing Rossland’s arts and sports communities together with our Create/Recreate installations on local trails. RCAC believes that Random Acts of Culture is an innovative, inexpensive, and inclusive way to bring the arts to a broader audience. Art is made accessible to all members of the community. The spontaneity of Random Acts causes people to take notice, be caught off guard and be delighted.
