Critical Engagements – Housing is a Right not a Luxury!

Friday, March 17, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Artist talk by Rebecca Garrett followed by community panel.
Panel Moderator: Emily Mathieu, Housing Reporter, Toronto Star

Panelists:

  • Rebeca Garrett, artist/activist
  • City Councillor Ana Bailão (Ward 18 Davenport), Toronto's Housing Advocate and City Council's lead to the National Housing Strategy consultations.
  • Randy McLin, Ontario Coalition Against Poverty 
  • Adam Vaughan, MP (Fort York - Spadina) 

Critical Engagements functions in-between an artist talk/screening, and a workshop to combine these elements to engage the OCAD U student body/faculty and surrounding community on housing issues. The housing crisis and increasing levels of poverty affect all of us. Critical Engagement is a concrete example of artist working with community, for the community. 

This event is organized by the OCAD University Art & Social Change Student Committee with the support of Culture Shifts, the OCAD Student Union and Art & Social Change.

ABOUT ART & SOCIAL CHANGE STUDENT COMMITTEE:
The Art & Social Change Student Committee is a group of OCAD U students and alumni whose goal is to unify social justice and its integration into artistic practice. We put into the forefront urgent matters affecting the student body, staff and faculty on campus. Some of these issues include (but are not limited to) environmental justice, sexual violence, student poverty and housing, combating racism, as well as decolonizing the curriculum. Through various student-led initiatives, we aim to raise awareness of equity and accessibility issues, and build a strong social justice community on campus.
