OCADU Contemporary Art, Design, and New Media Art Histories Conference 2016

Conference Date: Saturday, March 12, 2016

The influence of trends is undeniable in contemporary culture, but rarely are its implications fully fleshed out. How can a trend mobilize or call others to action? As scholarship in contemporary art, design and new media becomes increasingly focused on networked lives, the digital platforms through which we communicate, interact, and share information demand academic and social inquiry.

Our keynote speaker for #trending: mobilizing art and culture, is Janaya Khan. Janaya is a black, queer, gender-nonconforming activist, staunch Afrofuturist, social-justice educator and boxer based in Toronto. http://janayakhan.com/black-lives-matter/
