About this Event
Guiding Bonds is an interdisciplinary conference that explores peer support networks amongst BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) scholars and artists engaged in research-creation practices. This event invites artists and researchers to engage in generative discussions about models for equity, diversity inclusion and transformative change.
This symposium will be co-hosted by OCAD, Guelph, York University, and Gallery 44 on Saturday, December 16th at the OCAD U Graduate Gallery. This event will feature conversations and panels with a theme that asks each mentor to bring their mentee, and vice versa. The day will include various presentations exploring themes related to mentorship, leadership, governance and peer support structure within arts and arts education.
This symposium is an opportunity to re-imagine research network models for BIPOC artists, designers, and scholars, as a way to further relationships, strategies, structures, and institutional change. It will feature local and international BIPOC scholars and practitioners who insert narratives of resistance, difference, and social change in creative practices using community, media, performance, literature, technology and interdisciplinary approaches.
