Join us for THE GATHERING on November 29 at the Small World Music Centre, 180 Shaw Street, Toronto, ON M6J 2W5.
THE GATHERING has been a very powerful, positive and supportive process geared towards sharing strategies in the engagement of indigenous, racialized, deaf, disabled and mad, women and other historically-marginalized artists and communities since it was initiated by CPAMO in Spring 2016. Given the convening’s success, The Gathering: Intersections between Community Arts and Socially Engaged Arts Practices will explore frameworks for understanding the potential of community arts and socially engaged arts in supporting the expressions of indigenous /racialized, disabled and other marginalized identified art making.
THE GATHERING will showcase performances, community-based visual arts and plenary sessions aimed at building organizational and artistic capacity, with the hope of enlivening the many ways in which the arts intersects with and provides public impact, civic engagement and deeper skills development. We will be announcing our roster of artists and panelists in the upcoming days!
We would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council, the Toronto Pearson International Airport’s Propeller Project, the Applegath Group, CIBC Wood Gundy, Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration for their support.
