Gathering Divergence Multi-Arts
Festival & Conference Fall 2021

 December 8 – December 10, 2021
In-person at Aki Studio (Toronto) and via Zoom

The Gathering Divergence Multi-Arts Festival and Conference has been a powerful, positive and supportive convening of arts practitioners geared towards sharing strategies in the engagement of indigenous, racialized, deaf, disabled and mad, women and other historically – marginalized artists and communities. This year, Gathering Divergence Multi-Arts Festival & Conference Fall 2021 | Art in the Time of Healing: The Importance of IBPOC Arts in Planetary Renewal will explore the role of IBPOC artists and organizations in the time of healing and renewal as our society emerges and reopens from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Held over three days, the festival and conference will feature panel discussions, showcase performances, workshops and networking opportunities for arts organizations, artists and arts sector professionals asking the same questions about anti-black racism in the arts, digital technology, its intersections with one’s artistic / organizational practices all grounded within the EDIP (Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity towards Pluralism). The sessions will be aimed at investigating systemic challenges, providing professional development while building organizational and artistic capacity.

We aspire to explore the many ways in which the arts and healing will support cultural impact, civic engagement and deeper understanding of emerging digital frameworks with a focus on planetary renewal.

As part of this Gathering Divergence, we have a visual art exhibition Dec. 7-16 at Daniels Spectrum Hallway Galleries (2nd floor at 585 Dundas Street East, Toronto, On M5A 2B7). Daniels Spectrum is open to the public Monday to Friday 9am to 8pm. Saturdays and Sundays closed.
