ARTISTS’ BLOC 2014
LOOKING BACK and MOVING FORWARD
Saturday December 13, 2014
3:00 p.m. – 5 p.m. at the IWC
4755 Van Horne, suite 110
This year the IWC Artists’ Bloc calls an open meeting, a retrospective look at 2014 and our artistic interventions, and a collective re-imagining of our actions together. For us to decide how we will move forward together, in our communities and in our common struggles!
Since its founding in 2012, the IWC Artist Bloc continues to evolve as a community activist art project, co-created by and for workers to share stories of resistance and dignity in struggle.
With performances at the IWC Mayworks festival, the Sala Rossa, and the Howl! Arts Festival; workshops hosted with Engrenage Rouage Noir and our community space at the IWC; public interventions at the Encuentro for Performance and Politics in the Americas, the Status for All march, St. Joseph’s Oratory, the Mexican Consulate in Montreal, and the Day for Decent Work conditions.
How can our collective projects continue to support existing IWC campaigns? What forms do we want this work and our organizing to take? What will our future projects look like? We invite members of the IWC, Artists’ Bloc participants and our communities to come together and co-create our future actions together.Tags: Artist Bloc
