Upcoming:

Sunday, May 12 – Art + Abolition for 2QTBIPOC Artists with the AMY Project

What is the relationship between the prison system and ongoing colonization?

What is the role that artists can play in undoing the colonial frameworks that perpetuate anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, Islamophobic, queerphobic, transphobic state discrimination? As 2QTBIPOC artists, in what was are we well positioned to imagine and practice alternative models of accountability, justice, and liberation? What could a world without prisons look like?

This two-hour workshop offers a facilitated creative space for 2QTBIPOC artists to be in community together, to interrogate the arts sector’s relationship to state violence, to laugh, to grieve, and to imagine new worlds together. TTC tokens and light refreshments will be provided. All participants will also receive a complimentary ticket to the 2:30pm showing of Lilies; Or, the Revival of a Romantic Drama.

This will be the final workshop of this season. The dates for the 2019-20 workshop series will be announced at our season launch party on September 13.
