Event Details

BORDER CROSSINGS: A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT LAB 

AGM WORKSHOPS TAKE PLACE IN THE GALLERY! THURSDAYS, 6 - 8 PM AND SATURDAYS, 1-3 PM UNTIL OCTOBER 21

Border Crossings is an interactive community engagement lab, in which visitors are invited to share their stories and experiences with crossing borders-physical and metaphorical; geographical, linguistic, spiritual and personal. Animated by activity stations, workshops, and community-built installations, Border Crossings is a space for forging connections and sharing experiences across the diverse communities that make up Mississauga. Drop in to share your story through various stations in the gallery, or participate in a workshop or event!

Join us at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, as we understand by creating, stopping, reflecting, and sharing: What is a border? What does it mean to cross a border? Why do we need borders? When does a border become a border?

AGM's Community Activator, Sharada Eswar, and artist Sonja Rainey will facilitate interactive arts informed activities. The stories and experiences you share will be included in the AGM's Border Crossings creation lab between September 7 - October 22, 2017.

Participation in workshops is free. Everyone is welcome! Registration through Eventbrite is required. For more information please visit: https://agmbordercrossings.com/

The Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM) is a public, not-for-profit, art gallery located in the Mississauga Civic Centre, right on Celebration Square and across from Square One Shopping Centre. The AGM is proud to admit people free of charge, serve communities, and provide positive visual art experiences for all visitors and is generously supported by the City of Mississauga, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, private citizens and its members.

First. New. Next. 

The AGM provides platforms for exhibitions, collections and experimentation in contemporary culture with a recent focus on artists and cultural producers from Indigenous, newcomer and youth communities. Through a broad range of educational programs, artist projects and other forms of critical dialogue, the AGM seeks to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, foster community, and provide spaces where alternative modes of thought are supported and activated in tangible ways.

Land Acknowledgment

We are thankful to the many First Nations, Inuit, Métis and global Indigenous peoples who call this region home.
