Work In Progress: May 7
Work In Progress (part of the Mayworks Festival)
Monday May 7, 7 - 9 pm, Free
The 519 Church Street Community Centre, East Room
A forum that critically engages the intersections between collaborative artistic practices, class, and working conditions for community engaged artists.
Co-curated and moderated by Florencia Berinstein and Anna Camilleri, Work in Progress features Mahlikah Awe:ri (Red Slam Collective) speaking about individuality and collectivity, Greg Frankson a.k.a. Ritallin (Cytopoetics) speaking about disparity and difference, Leah Houston (MABELLE Arts) speaking about the artist as worker, and Loree Lawrence (Ontario Arts Council) speaking about art as commodity.
Each panelist brings a wealth of expertise and experience to share and will provide case studies. Interaction and discussion will be encouraged with those in attendance. If you work in the field of community-engaged arts, we hope you’ll join us!
