Creative Minds: Art & Social Justice
AGO Creative Minds at Massey Hall
Art and Social Justice
Featuring writer Andr Alexis, artist Rebecca Belmore, filmmaker Deepa Mehta and musician/artist Buffy Sainte-Marie.
Moderated by CBC Metro Morning host Matt Galloway, the conversation will consider the role of the creative community in confronting issues of systemic discrimination and social justice. As movements such as #IdleNoMore and #BlackLivesMatter gain momentum in Canada and around the world, Galloway will ask the artists to imagine the actions that they believe could lead to lasting change.
Creative Minds is a new semi-annual series in partnership with AGO, Massey Hall, Banff Centre, and CBC and was developed with the support of Series Presenters Jonas & Lynda Prince, whose leadership inspired the development of the project.
