Social Distance Festival
... celebrating art from all over the world, showcasing amazing talent, and coming together as a community at a time when we need it more than ever.
Their current show Connecting Perspectives is a must see:
Connecting Perspectives is a cross-border art initiative produced by the Social Distancing Festival and the Consulate General of Canada in New York. Drawing inspiration from the theme “Art Today,” 26 artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour from Canada and the United States were paired and funded to create new, interdisciplinary, collaborative art. We are honoured to be featuring the works of these visual artists, poets, choreographers, and musicians. Our jury reviewed nearly 400 submissions, selecting 26 artists from across Canada and the United States, including: Alberta, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Manitoba, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Brunswick, New Mexico, New York, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ohio, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Washington, Washington DC, and Yukon. These are their inspiring works.
ARC Gallery & Educational Foundation
...ARC dedicates on-going exhibition space to community groups working with under-served populations or individuals that use art primarily as a means of self-expression and/or healing. A forum is created to generate cultural, social and political awareness vis-à-vis artwork and ideas that would otherwise go unnoticed by the general viewing public.
For the last ten years, ARC members have been working with a local residence for women survivors of domestic violence and their children. The results of our on-going creative expression workshops culminate in an annual exhibition of the women’s work in Special Events at ARC Gallery.
