The Accessibility of Victoria’s Arts Scene: A Community Conversation- Part 1
Join us on April 27 from 1-3pm via video conferencing or telephone to think through futurism of a fully accessible Victoria arts community. What do you want to see change in Victoria’s arts community so you can exhibit, perform, or sell your work? What organizations or cities’ programming do you think should be emulated? What else is possible? Do these programs make sense for all communities? How do we move beyond access to move us close to justice and intersectionality, not just inclusion, segregation, and accommodations?
In creating a new program around theme of accessibility and art, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is looking for discussion and feedback in creating barrier-free projects centering on artists and individuals from the disabled, IBPOC, LGBTQ2+, and low-income communities. While conversation is encouraged, all are welcomed to sit in.
The conversation will feature Vancouver-based artist Carmen Papalia and Victoria-based facilitator Parker Johnson who will talk about their experiences leading movements that model guidelines for mutual care.
This workshop will be available through the free video conferencing platform, Zoom, as well as through phoning in through the number below. The workshop is free and available to 100 participants.
