Image of OCADU reflected on AGO by Rachel Nixon
OCADU/AGO/CWSE OISE partnered symposium with think-tank sessions and gallery experience.
Wednesday Oct 23rd 11:30 am – 3pm
Weston Family Learning Centre, Art Gallery of Ontario
FREE & All are welcome!

We are witnessing a rapidly changing globalized society in which our citizens experience a growing sense of uncertainty, exclusion and loss. Yet globalization exposes us to diverse images, representations and things cultural. These have literally taken over our lives and engaged us in provocative ways.
Symposium presenters and provocateurs speak from their practices as artists, activists, museum researchers, or educators, and, like the AGO gallery educator(s) who will lead the gallery experience for this event, are acutely aware of the needs and creative potentials of our diverse population. This is reflected in their practice and in their contributions to educational change.
Co-conveners: Pam Patterson & Carrie Swartz with Dr. Christine Bovis-Cnossen.

Speakers/Facilitators: Judith Snow, Keri Ryan, Syrus Ware, Spencer J. Harrison, Cathy Berry.
