Revivify

An immersive sensory art experience

Revivify, a free, two-day festival celebrating the human experience through immersive sensory art, is set to take place at Downstreet Dance Studio in Charlottetown July 8–9. Centered around the concept of revival and giving new life, the festival aims to provide attendees with a space to unplug, recharge, and cultivate mindfulness through a carefully curated program of activities.

On day one, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities tailored to promote present-moment awareness and well-being. The schedule includes breathwork and meditation sessions, dance and yoga workshops, as well as adult storytelling, designed to transport participants back to their child-like state. Attendees can also enjoy presentations by Julie Pellissier-Lush, Eberechi Okwuwolu, Joe Dames and others. 

Day two is divided into two parts. The first part of the day will feature art installations and exhibits. Through interactive experiences, attendees can engage with wellness practices from a unique perspective, such as controlling the pace of videos with their breath or creating personalized beats through movement. These innovative approaches were developed by Eberechi Okwuwolu during the digital media residency with this town is small. The second part of day two will begin with a children’s story time with Amanda Fernandez, followed by a showcase of local talent alongside the art installations. 

To conclude the festival, attendees will be treated to a live music segment featuring the artists Melvis, Elvis, and Saffron, followed by an open mic session, allowing individuals to express their creative voices.

The festival encourages participants to embrace the present moment, fostering well-being and personal growth. With a commitment to inclusivity and community engagement, Revivify invites individuals of all ages and backgrounds to embark on a transformative journey of revival.
