Call for Workshop Proposals: Feminist Art Conference

Published July 18, 2014

BIGFACLOGO

We are looking for preliminary proposals to gather ideas for grant applications and other funding.

This call is for people who have ideas for a workshop and want to work with other like-minded but differently-skilled practitioners to build feminist knowledge and activity out of studio practice.

In 2015, FAC will be returning to OCAD University. OCAD U will be opening up their studio spaces to FAC2015 for workshops and panels. We would like to reach out to our community for the content of these workshops.

For one aspect of FAC2015, we are looking for workshops based around feminist social justice issues that bring together ideas and creative practice to address the power of art for social change. We are also looking for ideas that create community partnerships.

We are asking you to send a brief proposal of your idea and we can help develop it through the use of studios and help to find collaborators to work with you to present your ideas at FAC2015.

Here are a list of possible studio spaces available:

Drawing and painting studios, printmaking, photo studios and equipment, rapid prototyping studios, spray booths, mouldmaking, sculpture studios, performance spaces, woodshops, fibre studios, ceramics, video-editing suites, computer suites and stop motion animation equipment, imaging labs and large-scale giclee printing, motion-capture studios, and various open studios and galleries.

Time frame: 3 hour workshops on September 26th and 27th during the conference

Support Technical: assistance from OCAD U technicians

Collaborative opportunities: Work with other members of the FAC community in a multidisciplinary framework

Please submit one paragraph outlining your idea and with the names of the people that would be leading the workshop. Even if you don’t want to lead the workshop and you have an idea, let us know!

DEADLINE: August 15th, 2014 EMAIL SUBMISSION TO: torontofac@gmail.com
