Oct Exhibition: I Belong, You Belong, We Belong

I Belong, You Belong, We Belong: Challenging Intersectionality in Modern Society (Oct, 1 - 26, 2012) is a drawing- and painting-based exhibition that investigates and challenges the “isms” present in modern society. Under the direction of Ashley Taylor and Mallory Diaczun, both artists and educators, select students in grades 6-8 from Earnscliffe Senior Public School have reflected and responded to the social injustice they have seen or experienced related to gender, sexual orientation, race, faith, ability, age, and class. By examining the interconnectedness of their own identities, the students hope to confront the viewer and suggest ways in which to create and maintain more welcoming, equitable, and inclusive environments.

CWSE Hallway Gallery, Oct, 1 - 26, 2012
252 Bloor Street West, 2nd Floor
Opening: Oct 1st 5.30-7pm.
Screenings begin at 6pm.
