Digital Diasporas with Artists 4 Long Term Care
Tue July 21, 2020 @ 17:45 - 18:45
We are thrilled to present the July edition of our new Digital Diasporas series featuring Artists 4 Long Term Care!
Artists 4 Long-Term Care (A4LTC) is a social action initiative co-founded by Kitra Cahana and Isadora Kosofsky that uses art and storytelling to raise awareness of the crisis facing residents and staff of long-term care facilities during the Covid-19 pandemic. A4LTC invites artists, photographers, writers, and filmmakers to create works that confront this issue, to be shared on social media with the hashtag #artists4longtermcare.
Artists are encouraged to create images of love, appreciation, resilience, resistance and humour with an eye towards increasing the visibility of those inside long-term care facilities with the hope that many of these materials will be displayed on the walls of these facilities to boost resident and staff morale.
About Digital Diasporas: Much as a diaspora describes the dispersal of a people across space, this series explores the new movements artists are taking away from their practice in the digital world or how they are working in ways that forge new communities and connections despite geographic distance. In short, it’s a series about being apart, together. Join us each month as selected artists take us through their practice prior to the pandemic, their innovations in response to social distancing, and their visions for the future.
This event is free and will be held via Zoom. Please register in advance using this link. You will receive the Zoom link one hour before the event. If you wish to make a donation, you’ll have the option to do so upon registration. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
