Event description

Description

The 12th Annual Peace, Conflict and Justice Conference, titled Resistance through Art will explore living practices of Art against structural violence. Through art as a critical methodology, the conference intends to disrupt the dominance of Euro-American frameworks of knowledge creation and production. We challenge frameworks that envision justice alongside the state and liberal institutions. Art in all mediums has been an active site of struggle in interpreting alternate visions of true justice. Through Art, we present living practices and experiences of political struggle and action. In this way, the agency of the human body is emphasized. We recognize this conference as a political space of thought and a site of struggle. In the contemporary political context, our conference is a node within larger networks in Toronto in envisioning critical justice.


This year, we invite artists to nuance our understanding of alternate practices of resistance. Over the span of two days, we offer space for reflection through artwork in inspiring student resilience in the academy. Refreshments will be provided.
