Apart, Together: Pandemic Life in a Box Preview
CHANGE OF EVENT TYPE - NOT IN PERSON! Artbeat Studio is proud to present a digital walkthrough of our showing of work produced since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Contributing artists are residents and community members of Central Neighbourhoods including Artbeat Studio Residency Alumni, Studio Central Volunteers and Participants, the IRCOM after-school program, and Central Neighbourhoods 55+ Wellbeing kit recipients. Each participant was given a shadowbox and art supplies to create a representation of their experience and perspective of the pandemic. These individual expressions are displayed in a collective installation representing dynamic community experience; being together in spirit while physically apart. The display serves as a visual collaboration as well as a time capsule. The virtual tour will be posted on Artbeat Creative Community Youtube account (link below) and linked on our website and social media pages. Also available will be recordings of interviews with some of the artists and project leaders. We hope to be able to present this exhibition in person (with limited attendance and strict COVID-19 safety regulations) later during Culture Days - please keep an eye out for that event!
This event is free.
