      Designing Art for Cultural Inclusion

      Tue, January 28, 2020 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM See description. Calling all people interested in inclusive art or who would like to learn how to break down stereotypes, myths, and misconceptions about ethnicity, immigration, race, religion, and culture through art. Art has an aesthetic value, but it also holds a valuable role in building movements, engaging with local communities, amplifying social change, and raising awareness about social issues. Art can be an agent of change. At this event, Founder and Director of BlackArtGastown, Nya Lewis, will talk about how art can be used to facilitate social change and raise awareness, and will offer some principles and promising practices to designing art through a lens of racial and cultural inclusion, diversity and equity. Designathon Project: This event is part of a city-wide poster campaign on ethnicity, immigration, race, religion, and culture for the Burnaby Together Coalition Against Racism and Hate intiative led by Burnaby Family Life. Attendees will have the opportunity to opt-in to form teams of 3 to 4 people to designing a poster. Design teams will have up to a month following the event to design a poster. $500 cash prize for the first team, gift cards for the second and third, and a free social justice workshop for all teams. *Note: Wanting to join a design team is not a requirement to attending this event.
