Art and Activism with Corrie Peters
Thursday, October 22, 2015, 6:30-8pm

Estella Conwill Májozo wrote, “To search for the good and make it matter.” What does this look like, lived out in art? Is there a utopian possibility in art that is able to have bearing on the state of the world? Is there something different about the relationship between art and activism at this moment in time? Is it more fraught, more symbiotic, more potent than ever?

  • Corrie Peters is an artist with a wealth of relationships. Many people have been willing to sit with her in her ignorance, her struggles and her joys, and have taught her so much. She currently lives on Treaty One Land in Winnipeg supported by family who were willing to move/be born here, so she could study at the University of Manitoba. (She finished and everyone is staying.)
