Friday, Nov. 3–Sunday, Nov. 12, 2023
Canal Convergence’s mission is to provide an authentic and immersive art experience in and around Scottsdale’s canal.
Canal Convergence returns to the Scottsdale Waterfront in 2023 with a central theme of “The Power of Play.” View the large-scale, light-based art installations.
Visit the Canal Convergence 2023 Overview webpage to learn about all the artworks, programming, and performances coming to the Scottsdale Waterfront from Nov. 3–12.
We recognize that this event takes place on unceded and unsurrendered Indigenous homelands. We acknowledge the ancestors of the First Nations peoples of modern-day Arizona. The makeup of our current state is entirely shaped by these ancestors. In fact, the name “Arizona” comes from the word for “little spring” in the O’odham language.
We also invest in the future of contemporary tribal members. As an arts and culture organization, it is our duty to uplift the artists and activists doing the work. We were honored to have had multiple visual artists and performers, representing numerous tribes, take part in Canal Convergence.
