The Gardiner wants to authentically create space for the counter-archives and lived experiences of local Queer, Trans, Indigenous, Black and People of Colour (QTIBPOC) communities.
In partnership with The 519, the Transformative Justice Project will navigate how models of restorative justice can address oppressive systems. Spurred by the violence experienced within the Church and Wellesley area in 2017, and the ongoing violent realities for 2-Spirit, queer, and trans communities broadly, the Gardiner and The 519 seek to support projects that view conflict through the lens of community and transformational justice. We are looking for projects that consider alternatives to the criminal justice system and engage in collaborative, therapeutic art making with residents and community members to explore what access to justice and police accountability look like.
Project participants will access space at The 519 for up to 16 hours of skill-sharing workshop programming that supports peer-to-peer learning.
Applicants for the Transformative Justice Project must propose a project for QTIBPOC communities that would include a minimum of six skills-sharing workshops at The 519 every Thursday evening (5 – 8 pm) during the months of April and May 2019. Knowledge exchanges and/or works created by participants must be part of the final exhibition during the designated July 30 – August 15 exhibition run. The project will have two days for installation (July 30 and August 1) and one day for teardown (August 15) in the Gardiner’s Exhibition Hall, with support from an installer.
