The “Other” in Art Education with Cheryl Zubrack

  • Thursday, January 28, 2016
  • 6:30pm – 8:00pm
  • The Royal Canadian Legion, 227 McDermot Ave.

How do we create a safe space for LGBTTQI* students in the art room? How do we ensure they have a voice and are heard with openness and respect? What does inclusiveness look like/sound like/feel like in a creative learning environment? What are the challenges that constrain us in the educational system? How might art educators nurture openness within this system? Using Olivia Gude’s article: “There’s Something Queer About This Class” as a departure point, artists and teachers alike will share experiences and offer input in this exchange of awareness. Feel free to bring examples of artwork/artists that would enrich the conversation.

Cheryl Zubrack is an educator, artist, kayaker, passionate learner, mother of an amazing *!
