18th National Metropolis Conference

metropolis-brandingOn March 5, 2016, I participated in a workshop at the 18th National Metropolis Conference – Getting Results: Migration, Opportunities and Good Governance, in Toronto.

Cultural Intersections: Inclusion, Social Innovation and Creativity

This workshop contextualizes migration at the intersections of labour, art and social change. It is well recognized that immigrants are confronted with fewer opportunities for engagement with and access to the arts. Yet, the role of art and language in immigrant narratives and corresponding emergent art forms/aesthetics should be viewed as a key to social inclusion.
