ASO Exec Spotlight: Sydney Cabioc

Please tell everyone a little bit about yourself—your name, program, year of study etc…

My name is Sydney Cabioc and I’m an Arts Management specialist with a minor in Studio and Eng. Lit. & Film



What made you decide to join the ARTSIDEOUT team? Is this your first year involved with the festival?

This is my 2nd year involved! I joined back then to help marketing as social media coordinator. It was so much fun and a great experience and I made a lot of friends. It is a great community to be a part of.



Can you tell us a little about your experience so far with ARTSIDEOUT, the UTSC arts community and your experience at UTSC in general?

On the day of ASO, it’s exciting and nerve-wracking because you want it to be the best year. The support and enthusiasm of the community drives me in my learning experience!



What artists inspire you?

Salvador Dali, Sarah Polley and my artist friends at school!



In addition to ARTSIDEOUT, are you involved in the arts in some other way? Do you create your own artwork?

I learned to love video art at school, so I continue to do this outside of school. I volunteer for arts organizations like the International Diaspora Film Festival. I would love to make a film one day.



What advice do you have for others who want to get involved with the UTSC arts community.

Don’t be afraid to take something you’ve never done before and be open to opportunities. School work may be overwhelming, but joining a community at school will really balance out that feeling!
