Inclusive Arts London






Inclu­sive Arts Lon­don is a regional col­lec­tive based on the social model of dis­abil­ity and is ded­i­cated to devel­op­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for Deaf artists, dis­abled artists and artists from mar­gin­al­ized com­mu­ni­ties expe­ri­enc­ing iso­la­tion and lack of access to an artis­ti­cally cre­ative life.

Our goals are to engage in artis­tic prac­tice and cul­tural enrich­ment by:

• Sup­port­ing and pro­mot­ing prac­tic­ing artists in all art dis­ci­plines from these com­mu­ni­ties
• Pro­vid­ing acces­si­ble and cre­ative oppor­tu­ni­ties for mak­ing and expe­ri­enc­ing art through pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment work­shops, exhi­bi­tion and per­for­mance oppor­tu­ni­ties, sym­po­siums and fes­ti­vals
• Iden­ti­fy­ing and nur­tur­ing the youth from these com­mu­ni­ties to develop and engage in artis­tic prac­tice
• Serv­ing a lead­er­ship role in cre­at­ing pub­lic aware­ness, through pro­mo­tion and pro­gram­ming, of the social model of dis­abil­ity
• Build­ing rela­tion­ships and fos­ter­ing col­lab­o­ra­tions with other arts and social ser­vice orga­ni­za­tions
• Devel­op­ing a cul­ture of inclu­siv­ity in the artsI have attached the logo.

August 14– Mississauga Media Arts Round Table

MANO is vis­it­ing Mis­sis­sauga on Tues­day, August 14th, 2018 and is invit­ing artists and arts work­ers in the region to join us that day in order to dis­cuss either pub­licly, pri­vately, or both, the cur­rent cli­mate for media arts prac­ti­tion­ers in the region. In atten­dance will be Ben Donoghue, Direc­tor of MANO and Adri­ana Rosselli, Mem­ber­ship & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Coordinator.

MANO has been an impor­tant ally and advo­cate for arts orga­ni­za­tions and indi­vid­ual artists in the Province for over ten years. While our focus is media and visual arts, we are very much invested in strength­en­ing the sec­tor more broadly and ensur­ing the sus­tain­abil­ity of the arts ecol­ogy in Ontario.

MANO will be host­ing a pub­lic round­table dis­cus­sion at 7PM and will be avail­able dur­ing the after­noon to meet indi­vid­u­ally with artists or organizations/collectives from 1-6pm on a first come first served basis. The round­table offers a space for peo­ple to share their thoughts on the cur­rent cir­cum­stances of the sec­tor and ways in which MANO can sup­port those work­ing in media arts in the region. The pri­vate meet­ings offer an open avenue to dis­cuss more spe­cific things per­tain­ing to your work from man­ag­ing a project and fund­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to how to orga­nize col­lec­tively or incor­po­rate as a not-for profit.

When? Tues­day, August 14 between 1pm and 6pm
Where? SAIB,1352 Lakeshore Rd E, Mississauga

re:assemblage collective

The re:assemblage col­lec­tive is com­mit­ted to cham­pi­oning under­rep­re­sented voices and per­spec­tives through pub­lic film/video screen­ings. We are itin­er­ant and inten­tional. We are “reassem­bling” assump­tions about artist film/video prac­tices: who is shown and the forms of works cham­pi­oned. We are inspired by Trinh Minh-ha’s film ‘Reassem­blage’. The re:assemblage col­lec­tive is Christina Bat­tle and Scott Miller Berry based in South­ern Ontario.
