Art+ Fall Showcase
The ART+ Fall Showcase will celebrate equity, diversity, inclusion and pluralism (EDIP) in the arts, including local artists from all Western and non-Western art disciplines. It would be an opportunity to create cultural exchanges between artists belonging to equity-seeking groups (ESG) and the local community, including but not limited to Indigenous, Black, people of colour, immigrant, refugee, disabled, 2SLGBTQI+ and women+ artists. In addition, each showcase will have a capacity-building component to continue building sustainable artistic practices for artists belonging to equity-seeking groups.
We have an exciting lineup of local artists and artists groups: Yulia Lisitsyna(Visual Arts), Tamiris Paes Souza (Violin), Esmeraldas de Colombia (Colombian Dance), Stuti Mukherjee (Indian Dance), Lubna Mousa (Visual Arts), Jack Tzekov (Visual Arts), Camila Reimers (Visual Arts), Bonita Eloise Ford (Performance), Christina Tzekova (Visual Arts), NortNsur (Music).
