Walls For All: An Online Panel Talk & Brainstorming Session

WALLS FOR ALL
A Panel and Brainstorming Jam for women & gender diverse street artists
Tuesday, December 13, 2022 | 2pm-4pm
Online using Zoom
FREE | Register via EventBrite
Featuring Panelists Fiya Bruxa, Claire Browne, Jacquie Comrie, and Danielle Hyde

Although more women and gender diverse muralists have become established and well-known artists over the years, mural art has traditionally been -and continues to be- a (mostly white) male dominated field full of barriers and challenges for gender diverse artists. How can we create more space for women and gender diverse creators to participate in street art culture? How can we help these artists tackle many of the barriers they face? Join Mural Routes and East End Arts for an afternoon of learning and brainstorming with some of the best artists in the street art world to jam on how to make our streets for everyone, and our Walls for All!”

Community Arts Canopy Town Hall – Community Arts & Digital Practice During COVID

“Last summer and through the fall and winter we worked with Nordicity and the Toronto Arts Foundation to investigate the dynamic shift to digital and virtual spaces for Community Arts (CA) organizations, practitioners, and Local Arts Service Organizations (LASOs) in Toronto.

This project aimed to assess the effectiveness of strategies and practices that we’ve all been using in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the challenges/barriers that we have encountered in moving to virtual models.

The report tools and supports that could help strengthen the abilities of Community Arts organizations and practitioners to serve their communities virtually, even as we’ve returned to in-person programming.

Who is this session for?

  • Community Arts Organizations, Service Organizations and Workers
  • Community Arts Practitioners and Facilitators


What can I expect?

At the Townhall we’ll hear about this report, hear from the City of Toronto about the status of their Community Development Review and later have a chance to brainstorm and share best practices in supportive and safe breakout rooms. You can view this report here

Virtual Screening: Visualizing Justice (BEING Studio, Sep 6)

“Explore disability justice from the perspective of BEING artists and their artwork!

Join us for the virtual premiere of Visualizing Justice, a series of five videos that explore what disability justice means through the point of view of artists with disabilities and their artwork. The screening will be hosted by fin-xuan shine, who produced and edited the series, and will be followed by a conversation between Bing Cherry and Jet Coghlan, two of the artists featured in the videos.

Disability justice was coined in 2015 by a group of Black, brown, queer, and trans disabled activists from the Disability Justice Collective, including Patty Berne, Mia Mingus, Leroy Moore, Eli Clare, and Sebastian Margaret.

Visualizing Justice is a collaboration between BEING artists and activists/artists in the disability arts community. Combining captioning, art, and interviews, this video series dives into five key elements of disability justice in a way that is accessible to a variety of audiences, including those with intellectual and cognitive disabilities.

The film series includes conversations from Pree Rehal, Henry Hong, Jet Coghlan, Bing Cherry, Carmen Papalia, Debbie Ratcliffe, Rebel Black and Charisse Rayne. Music by Bucko and video editing by fin-xuan shine.”
