The Feminist Art Collective is behind some of the most interesting events and initiatives we’ve seen in recent memory. They’re definitely on top of the game when it comes to art programming in our city. Suffice it to say, you should DEFINITELY apply for their artist residency, which is taking place at Artscape Gibraltar Point on Toronto Island (have a look at their schedule from last year).
The FAC residency will gather artists together who focus on social justice issues like rape culture, transphobia, racism, ableism, ageism, media representation, cultural appropriation, environmental degradation and impact on Indigenous lands, gender-based violence, and Islamophobic policies. They aim to create a space that is positive, celebratory, intellectually engaging and provocative.
The deadline for applications is November 14, so you’ve got to get on it. Good luck!
