Art for Social Change NOW Gathering Archive: Digital Strategies

“Hosted by the International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC), this was the inaugural event of the Art for Social Change Network (ASCN), a new national network of community-engaged art for social change (ASC) artists and organizations. Right now, in every corner of Canada, community-engaged artists and organizations are nurturing new forms of collaborative creation, dialogue, partnerships, and action for positive change. At the gathering we explored important key questions: Who is doing the work? What are the current struggles and innovative solutions? How can we and how do we address issues of equity and justice? How are we rising to the critical challenges happening in the community-engaged arts landscape today?”

Session – Art for Social Change: Digital Strategies

“The world is becoming increasingly digitized and this affects how we approach art for social change. The virtual space offers endless tools for innovation and also presents some significant challenges when it comes to authenticity and community engagement. Panelists will discuss how they have used their respective digital strategies to forward their work for social change through the arts and some of the ways they have navigated challenges within the digital space. Questions about access and representation, as well as innovation and the future of art for social change in an ever-changing environment, will be brought into discourse with panelists and attendees. Featuring: Adonis Huggins (ON), LeeAnne Ireland (AB), and Joy Balmana (MB). Hosted by Josh Ruth (MB).”
