Presented in partnership by Union Gallery Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning

Through archival research and oral histories, Creating Communities Through Art starts to map the teaching and learning that takes place across Katarokwi-Kingston’s creative communities. Questions emerge about art making and other creative collaborations as forms of community-based learning, mentorship, and world making. The informal and reciprocal learning that happens through the processes of making art and sustaining communities is reflected in the artwork presented.  


As curators, we are interested in the importance of site-specificity and the diverse objectives that link Katarokwi-Kingston arts communities in unexpected ways.  We welcome a broad definition of the terms “art, community, teaching, learning, and collaboration” to engage with the informal and formal ways that community members learn together through the arts.
