About this Event

Join us to think through the present state of accessible in Victoria arts community. What barriers have you found in showing, selling, or performing your work in Victoria? Are these barriers the same in other Canadian cities you have lived or worked in, or are they unique to Victoria? What current individual and organizational initiatives have been occurring in Victoria that have been working?

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 Victoria-based artists Kate Collie and Joanne Cuffe to hear about their artistic practices as well as thoughts and lived experiences around the current state of accessibility.

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.
