Designing Art for Cultural Inclusion

Centre for Community Engaged Learning is holding an interesting art workshop and is calling all people interested in inclusive art or who would like to learn how to break down stereotypes, myths, and misconceptions about ethnicity, immigration, race, religion, and culture through art.

The art has a social purpose, helping individuals engage with local communities, amplifying social change, and raising awareness about social issues. Art can be an agent of change.

At this event, Founder and Director of BlackArtGastown, Nya Lewis, will talk about how art can be used to facilitate social change and raise awareness, and will offer some principles and promising practices to designing art through a lens of racial and cultural inclusion, diversity and equity.
