The CARE project is a new framework focused on the development, writing and sharing of monthly thematic workshops and the facilitation of community-centric and formative artistic events. Together we will explore concepts such as, but not limited to: anti-oppressive arts practice, the importance of self-expression and art for our health, appropriation and assimilation aesthetics in the creative sector, supporting survivors of violence through a trauma-informed framework, artists resisting tokenism as well as tokenism vs. invitation in an art space setting.
Through CARE we intend to create new space for collaboration, mentorship and peer-to-peer skill skare. We aim to reduce barriers that artists, community members, arts organizations face re: creating and attending arts-related events.
CARE is created in partnership with South House Sexual & Gender Resource Centre and supported by the Nova Scotia Culture Innovation Fund.
Join us in visioning online by completing this form we’ve created. We’d love to hear your input on various ways that our space and outreach could be improved, as well as your ideas for programming you’d like to see take place as part of the CARE Project!
Stay tuned for more information about upcoming programming and other events!
