Skule Arts Festival (SAF)

SAF, or Skule Arts Festival, is a student club at the University of Toronto dedicated to connecting engineering students with art. While the profession of engineering is often seen as very remote from art, we take the stance that engineering and art go hand in hand. As such, we provide the means for engineering students at U of T to develop their creative side through various forms of art.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between the areas of engineering/ math/ sciences and art, to foster creative thinking and artistic development alongside these studies and to, ultimately, show that these subjects can – and sometimes must – go hand in hand.

The main event of Skule Arts Festival is a week-long art exhibit in late January-early February, as well as a coffee house hosted during the week of the exhibit. The art and performances seen at the festival are mostly submitted by engineering students, but all U of T students are encouraged to submit their artwork and perform at the coffee house. In addition, SAF hosts talks, workshops, photowalks, and other get-togethers where students from various areas of study can meet to learn, develop, and practice their artistic skills. Lastly, during festival week, SAF holds a charity art auction where artists can choose to auction their work, donating at least 40% of the proceeds to a charitable organization chosen beforehand (voted on by the artists involved).
