Wednesday, October 19th
7-9 PM
Xpace Cultural Centre (2-303 Lansdowne Ave, on Lansdowne Ave & Dundas St. West)

City Limits is a panel discussion exploring the role that the social and physical landscape of an urban area plays in exacerbating the disenfranchisement, social separation and oppression of black communities. Conversely, through this discussion we are also looking to highlight and expand upon the ways in which communities can be brought together and uplifted by conscious efforts to reverse these processes.

Panelists:

Karimah Gheddai
Landscape & Urban Designer, Photographer and Cinematographer. UofT graduate with an M.A in Urban Design

Tau Lewis
Self-Taught Sculptor

Lisa Smart
Outreach & Programs Coordinator at Daniel's Spectrum

Moderated by Sydney Allen Ash, founder of Portrait.co

Xpace Cultural Centre is a membership driven artist-run centre supported by the OCAD Student Union and dedicated to providing emerging and student artists and designers with the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional setting. We program contemporary practices that respond to the interests and needs of our membership. As we program with shorter timelines this allows for us to respond to contemporary issues in theory and aesthetics, keeping an up to the minute response to what is going on directly in our community.
