The Mayor’s Celebration of Youth Arts is returning to the Aurora Cultural Centre for its twelfth year showcasing the artistic achievements of Aurora’s graduating students.
This year, the Aurora Cultural Centre is excited to invite interdisciplinary artist Emily DiCarlo to deliver a talk to the next generation of artists emerging from the Aurora community.

This speaker series is offered free of charge.
In this talk, Emily DiCarlo will discuss the events following her graduation from high school, leading up to her professional development as an artist working in many forms, including installation, performance, video, writing and more. Focusing on artist residencies, publications, as well as her many independent projects, DiCarlo will review the opportunities young artists may encounter early on in their career path.
About Emily DiCarlo
Emily DiCarlo is an artist, researcher and writer whose interdisciplinary practice considers site, temporality and collaboration as the foundational principles for meaning-making. Evidenced through installation, video, performance and text, her work connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration. Her work has been most recently exhibited at the Art Museum in Toronto and SÍM Gallery in Reykjavik, Iceland, as part of their artist-in-residence program. She is the recipient of the 2022-2023 Canada Arts Council Research-Creation grant and the 401 Richmond Career Launcher Prize and held the 2019-2020 Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research grant (SSHRC).
She has been a council member of The International Society for the Study of Time since 2016 and co-edited a special issue of their academic journal KronoScope, which focused on “Anthropocenic Temporalities.” Last year, she contributed her chapter “Transcending Temporal Variance: Time Specificity, Long Distance Performance and the Intersubjective Site” to the current volume of The Study of Time (Brill Publishing). She currently lives and works in Toronto (Tkaronto), Canada.
