shift CTRL | responding to the city we are in: engagement hub on art, politics and belonging | September 6 - 30

 

All are welcome to enter the XIT-RM, learn, reflect and interact. Share your perspectives on art, politics and belonging through the AGM’s engagement hub.

 

Gallery spaces are often conceived of as separate(d) from communities, requiring community members to cross a threshold to enter, engage and be included. shift CTRL is a search for the liminal space, not simply inviting people in, but recognizing the ways in which the institution is always a part of community. Over three months, the XIT-RM is transformed into a multi-use space for shift CTRL with three distinct components that ask questions, celebrate community and challenge barriers.

QTBIPOC sauga is a grassroots gathering of queer, trans, Black, Indigenous and people of colour communities from across Peel.
