Public Space at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington
September 1, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
An event every day that begins at 10:00 AM, repeating until December 15, 2021
What does it mean for a gallery to create community-focused programs that respond to and inquire about art’s role as public engagement? The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington (VAC) is pleased to present Public Space, a year-long transforming project founded on artistic and cultural collaboration. Five artists are facilitating collaboration-based participatory and community-focused programming for underserved Durham Region groups and non-profit organizations. Public Space represents a new way that artists, community, and galleries can work together for inclusive experiences that specifically serve multiplistic publics. Working with a number of local community non-profit organizations, Artist Nicolas Fleming is collaborating with Sahar Te, Josh Vettivelu, Waard Ward and Syrus Ware to help design and produce site and project-specific environments for community-activated events.
