Anti Racism/Anti Oppression workshops for Cultural Producers
led by Rania El Mugammar.
Part of the RECENTRE initiative, curated by Su-Ying Lee and presented by Trinity Square Video.
Anti-oppression + Anti racism for Artists + Cultural Producers
This workshop for artists/cultural producers explores the language, theories and practices of anti-oppression in depth. Institutional, community based and organizational strategies for building equity and unlearning oppression are central to the content and objectives of the workshop. Creative, technical and collaborative models for building equity and liberation will be explored. Group activities, case studies and discussion are critical tools to apply the learnings of this workshop. Artists will examine the power dynamics that shape access, inclusion and opportunities in Canada’s arts and cultural landscape. The anti-oppression framework will be used to critique institutional dynamics as well as personal artistic practices. Participants will have access to a plethora of digital and print resources to continue their learning journey beyond the scope of the session.

RECENTRE is a discursive program curated by Su-Ying Lee and presented by Trinity Square video that addresses structural racism by identifying bias and discrimination in modes of representation, like the language and imagery applied to people who are Black, Indigenous and of colour (BIPOC). RECENTRE offers decoding and interpretation tools to cultural producers through a series of 1) artist-led programs focused on visual and media-art literacy, 2) an imagining of the future by art writers and 3) structural racism workshops for cultural producers.
RECENTRE answers the call of artists and art workers who are responding to an urgency to make meaningful their discussions about structural oppression and wishing to enfold solutions and strategies into their work.
More information about RECENTRE activities will be announced soon.
