Bodies in Translation: Activist Art Technology and Access to Life is a 7-year multidisciplinary, university-community research project that at its core, aims to cultivate and research activist art.
The Guiding Principles grew out of conversations, value systems and practices that have led us throughout the first few years of the project. We formalized the Guiding Principles in a written document in 2018 and worked with graphic illustrator Devon Kerslake and video maker Nicholas Loess to animate the Principles through illustrative texts and drawings. The soundscape for the video is the from the song "Manitou" by Ziibiwan.
This video was produced by Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life, a project of Re•Vision: The Centre for Art & Social Justice at the University of Guelph.
The Guiding Principles document was written by Carla Rice, Eliza Chandler, Lindsay Fisher, Tracy Tidgwell, Nadine Changfoot, Ingrid Mündel, and Susan Dion Fletcher.
