My Freedom Is Your Freedom

Date: Wednesday - September 23, 2020
Time: 3:00 PM
Location: Online - Facebook

This event is EDT time

In the last couple of years, there has been a push by artists and activists to have Emancipation Day — the day that Slavery was abolished throughout the British Empire in 1843 — recognized as an official holiday.  To celebrate International Day of Peace, Welcome Collective is collaborating with POP Montreal and Emancipation Arts to shine a light on this effort by hosting an online panel to discuss the importance of Emancipation and Peace. The discussion will be facilitated and led by Ngozi Paul who is an award winning stage and screen actress, writer, director and producer who is committed to telling stories from an Afro-centric perspective through her socially and culturally innovative work. The artists and activists on the panel will discuss what emancipation means for them, how they are fighting for it and embodying it through their art and their activism, and how we can all embody these values in our own lives.

Living Together in Times of Pandemics - French

Date: Friday - September 25, 2020
Time: All Day
Location: Online - ZOOM

This event is EDT time

This webinar will address the notion of “living together” in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and the possibility of rehabilitating this idea, one which has been overlooked by more than 15 years of identity debates in Québec. We will propose several points of discussion on lockdown and re-opening in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic as a potential for rethinking the social bond. First, we will examine the political models of planning for living together adopted by different States. Secondly, we will attempt to ask how living together matters from a societal perspective and to question the role of cities in rebuilding social ties. Finally, we will propose an exploration of situations and concrete solutions for imagining life after the pandemic.

Inclusion in the contemporary art ecosystem: realities and needs

Date: Tuesday - October 6, 2020
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Online

French - EDT time

Recent events have shaken up the status quo in the contemporary art ecosystem and call for a greater awareness of the biases, individual and collective, associated with systemic racism, as well as an understanding of their genesis.

The duty to consult is of importance, and this is therefore the mission of this discussion panel, which will first aim to discuss these realities, leading to the identification of the needs behind the instigation of truly inclusive practices in the field of contemporary art. Subsequently, this conversation will allow the setting up of initiatives helping to grow and improve the visibility and place offered to contemporary art players from diverse backgrounds.

The panel, presented by Résidence, will bring together a variety of actors of the contemporary art ecosystem, such as Cheryl Sim, Ph. D., Curator and Managing Director at PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art in Montréal; Diane Gistal, researcher, independent curator and founder of the Montréal organization celebrating Afro-descendant cultures and history Nigra Iuventa; visual artist Stanley Février, who was recently awarded the Prix en art actuel du Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, as well as visual artist, curator and galerist Rad Hourani.

Film Discussion: The Present

Date: Wednesday - June 2, 2021
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Online - ZOOM

The Present, an Oscar-nominated short film streaming on Netflix, portrays the daily obstacles facing Palestinians in the West Bank through the experiences of a Palestinian father and his daughter as they go to buy an anniversary gift for his wife.

We aim to create a space to share thoughts and feelings surrounding the film, to take a deeper look at the intricacies and nuances of Palestinian and Israeli experiences as depicted in the film, and to examine the film’s potential in the context of peacebuilding. Please watch the film ahead of the discussion. It is available to view on Netflix.
