Members of the Ottawa-Gatineau Printmakers Connective (OGPC) offer a behind-the-scenes look at the complexities of printmaking to elucidate the importance of printmaking in contemporary arts. Working collectively on the theme of Migration, the audience is witness to the artist process as they explore variations on a theme so crucial in the world today. Practiced by individuals and groups, humans and other species, migration boils down to changing location in search of new resources or opportunities, safety and ultimately survival. The artists invite the audience into their process as they tease meaning from visual threads and entwine them into a picture of migration in the 21st century.

The hub will offer three online video-based events, where each artist provides a behind-the-scenes look at their creative process for a piece in the 'Migration in Print' exhibition, being held at Carleton University's new Book Arts Lab in the MacOdrum Library September 23rd through October 16th. On October 14th, the Book Arts Lab will host a Public event featuring the artists' work and offering a hands-on printmaking experience.
