PLANS FOR THE 4cS: CAPITALISM, COLONIALISM, CLIMATE CHANGE STUDY GROUP:
I suggest we form a number of different study groups at different homes, each tackling 1 of the 4 Cs. And, although art always surfaces in our discussion, it might be good to add a separate study group on Art and Politics. There have been a lot of interesting texts written specifically about that topic, and the group could also look at and discuss examples. I am collecting some on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/researchinartri/
It might be a way of covering more ground, and we could share what we learned in, say, a year. We could even start thinking a bit bigger, and organize a day-long “symposium” for a larger public….
If this is the route we would like to go, we could start in the fall, 2019
- July 17, 2019
The third Wednesday in July, our regular date and time, Beth Shepherd will present a paper she wrote on the pastoral as an eco-critical art form: “Cattle in Print: The Changing Pastoral.” Our discussion will centre on this topic.
- We’ll skip August.
“Where Art Comes Home: RIA’s First Ten Years,” is the title of a writing project that I am working on. It will be a reflective essay on our experiences with RIA’s first ten years, seen within a larger context of home-based culture.
I am happy to announce that I received a project grant (2018) for this endeavor from the Cultural Funding Support Section of the City of Ottawa! Thank you, Ottawa! (Petra Halkes)
