On behalf of the Board of Directors, I invite you to join us for the fifth installment of the Mountain Standard Time (M:ST) Performative Art Festival. Building on an incredible history of collaboration, innovation, and community support, the M:ST 5 Festival will bring two weeks of cutting-edge performative art to Calgary from October 8 to 22, 2010.

M:ST is a biennial festival that celebrates innovative and critically engaged performative art. M:ST ensures that performative art practices are recognized and sustained in the Southern Alberta region, and fosters innovation and collaboration among local, national, and international artistic communities.

The term performative describes practices that originate from a visual or media arts background and involve the live presence of the artist.Performative art draws primarily from the tradition of performance art, but can also include public interventions, culture jamming, video, film, spoken word, installation,or live web streaming. Above all, performative art is unique in its ability to break down distinctions between the artist and the viewer, often directly involving participation and input from the audience.

This year's Festival includes performances, exhibitions, screenings,lectures, panel discussions, and workshops t􀀵at showcase the artists,practices, and ideas that are a part of this unique and evolving medium. Please visit the M:ST website for up-to-the-minute updates on festival times and locations.

Our sincere and heartfelt thanks go out to the team of artists,administrators, organizations and volunteers who make M:ST possible!
