Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion
Thursday, November 12 – Saturday, November 14, 2015
Ryerson Student Centre | 55 Gould Street, Toronto, Ontario
From November 12 to 14, 2015, Artist-Run Centres & Collectives of Ontario (ARCCO) hosted Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion, a national conference focusing on diversity in the artist-run centres’ network.
Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion explores notions of artistic and cultural engagement through a range of perspectives found in both Canada and abroad around forms of advocacy, artistic activisms, modes of engagement, centres without a fixed location and organizational transitions. Over the course of three days, artists, curators, academics, activists and cultural workers will come together through formal presentations and self-directed discussions to reconsider forms of engagement at artist-run centres and public institutions as particular sites of past, present and future relevance.
Please join us at the Ryerson Student Centre to participate in these informative discussions, as well as additional activities.
Artists at the Center: Moving from the Margins to Inclusion is proudly presented in partnership with Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference / Conférence des collectifs et des centres d’artistes. ARCCO gratefully acknowledges the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ontario Arts Council.
