Poet (aka Melissa A. Dean), visual artist/educator Mark "Kurupt" Stoddart and Jane-Finch youth from Success Beyond Limits.

CIA #2 is the second in a series of experimental exhibition projects that re-envision a different role and function for the gallery space. Over the next two months, projects are developed in the gallery through hands-on "studio-based" explorations, workshops, screenings, hosted events, guerilla publishing, and other convivial encounters with individuals and groups
