Support our next Gathering!

As part of CPAMO’s ongoing commitment to discuss and showcase works of art by Indigneous, racialized and historically marginalized artists, we’re raising funds!!!

CPAMO has invited such artists in theatre (Modern Times, Aluna, Cahoots, Native Earth Performing Arts), in music (Small World Music and Polyphonic Ground), in dance (Sampradaya Dance Creations, Kaha:wi Dance Theatre, Collective of Black Artists, dance Immersion)  and many individual Indigenous and racialized artists, to participate in the Pluralism and Aesthetics Gathering. These artists engage Indigenous, racialized, queer and intersectional communities as well as those interested in arts practices coming from these communities.

We call it ‘the gathering’ as we believe this allows those attending to bring themselves to our events and explore issues related to the arts practices of Indigenous, racialized and other marginalized artists in a non-hierarchical space.  A simple title that exemplifies our values of pluralism in which every participant is important and has a contribution to make that should, and will, be heard.

What we need and what you get

The Pluralism and Aesthetics Gathering is a series of artists’ talks and performance showcases highlighting Indigenous, racialized and other marginalized groups’ arts practices.  These are open forums aimed at educating artists, arts administrators, curators/programmers, agents and the public about the vibrant arts practices emerging from those communities engaged as panelists and/or performers. This gathering – Pluralism and Aesthetics – will help to define and raise the importance of arts practices based on values and traditions made contemporary and shaping the arts scene of today and tomorrow.

This is a unique opportunity for you to contribute to an event that showcases a broad range of artistic practices. The funds we receive will be to support payments to artists and speakers who are part of CPAMO’s gathering on Pluralism and Aesthetics.

Please support our next gathering by making a contribution to our fundraiser!
