OCAD University’s Great Hall
100 McCaul St., Second Floor
Meet and join Chicago-based designer and artist Cheryl Pope and create a protection necklace, unique to you and for you to keep.
Pope designs objects and situations for listening. Through sculpture, installation and performance, she creates works that explore often uncomfortable issues concerning power, inequality, race, gender, identity and violence. Pope frequently makes her art in collaboration with others. When working in this manner, the pieces she designs set up a framework addressing a specified topic. Such frameworks bring forward the thoughts, feelings and experiences of the people she collaborates with.
Event is FREE, all are welcome
Complimentary workshop supplies are provided
The space is wheelchair accessible through use of elevators from the ground floor
Fully accessible with gender-neutral washrooms
This workshop is an extension of Pope’s exhibition, Objects for Listening. Runs from June 8 to July 4 in OCAD U’s Great Hall.
Stick around and join us for You Can Show With Us Digital Image Slam! Event begins immediately following the workshop.
