Emily Promise Allison is a canadian artist focused on installation, performance art, and pedagogy. She studies at the alberta college of art + design (sculpture bfa), and the glasgow school of art (sculpture + environmental art ba hons). Her previous education and work experience in dance and theatre has evolved into a form of performance art that could be described as ‘romantic’. Her performance work was first seen as part of PAS #24 in calgary, alberta. Since then she has participated as performance artist within the province as part of the mountain standard time performative arts festival, emmedia, truck gallery, southern alberta art gallery, and the city of calgary’s inaugural nuit blanche festival. Impassioned by children, their unusual communication skills and imaginative resourcefulness, she has been teaching experimental theatre and visual art to youth since 2007.
