Community Art Lab with Vicky Chainey Gagnon and Yaël Filipovic
Thursday October 18, 2012

Vicky Chainey Gagnon (Director/Curator, Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University) and Yael Filipovic (former Curator, Education and Cultural Action, Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop’s University) will discuss the Community Art Lab – a special mediation project aiming to explore from a creative point of view the pressing social issues of our day and how these affect our direct community. Based in Sherbrooke, Quebec, the Lab has been in operation for the past 4 years and under the coordination of a professional Curator of Education and Cultural Action since 3 years. In that time, the Lab has generated contact with over 3000 children, youth, adults and senior citizens, proving that there is a viable dimension and a critical importance to civically engaged public programming.

A series of lectures, reflecting the variety of initiatives that are being generated by university art galleries across the country, will provide a context for the work done at the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery and a means to highlight the scope of the research that is being undertaken by these university galleries.
