An inFlux of talent headed to Surrey Art Gallery

Immersive evening features live performances, spoken word, DIY art-making and more.

You can’t spell party with out art.

A retro-inspired evening of art and live performance takes place Feb. 27 when the Surrey Art Gallery presents inFlux, an immersive experience that mixes a cocktail of DIY art-making, live music, hip-hop dance, spoken word, as well as compelling visual and performance art.

Celebrating some of the best of local talent, this event’s reputation is growing as Surrey’s social hub for checking out and creating art with friends.

This is an all-ages event. No tickets needed, but a donation at the door of $5 minimum per person will be collected.

The evening will feature a diverse line-up including Semiahmoo artist Roxanne Charles and James Dawson, who will present a piece of performance art with singing and hand drumming that explores the tension between consumer and traditional cultures.

The Rupe and Puma Busking Experiment will share their street-inspired busking routine, bringing together hip-hop and spoken word. Throughout the evening, The Star Captains will serve up fresh musical jams, including an innovative set with DJ JT.

Participants can also get their hands dirty making cardboard hats and snapping poses in the time-travelling photo booth.

inFlux takes place from 8-11 p.m. The Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave.
