Canal Convergence is an annual series of free educational activities and interactive events at the Scottsdale Waterfront. The event is surrounded by cutting-edge public art installations suspended above and placed throughout waterfront created by international and local artists. Visitors to Canal Convergence will experience public art workshops, outdoor dance performances, community bike rides, a series of artist talks, poetry readings, and live music.
