The 2023 Provocation Ideas Festival is a new public square of spirited discussion, debate, and exploration of what is and what could be.

Provocation brings together disparate voices working for positive change.

A Festival of Discovery

Provocation tackles difficult topics through vibrant public discussion, art, theatre, film, music, storytelling, and more.

Art, Performance, and Dialogue

From large-scale projections to intimate conversations, they’re creating interactive sties that host the unexpected.

Running through the month of May, we invite OCADFA members to explore the Provocation Ideas Festival website and attend the various events which are sure to be of interest to our membership.
