Nuit Blanche + RUTAS Symposium: A Home for Our Migrations
Celebrating the return of in-person gatherings for Nuit Blanche Toronto and the RUTAS Festival 2022, Nuit Blanche + RUTAS Symposium: A Home for Our Migrations will bring together scholars, artists, and community activists for lively dialogues/conversatorios, workshops, keynote speakers, and performances. Over 60 invited presenters will engage with a range of timely topics in response to emerging artistic practices, as well as growing migration and environmental crises.
Topics include: transformative curatorial practices, public art futures, performance actions/acciónes, intersections with labour, land, and diasporic memory, mobility as artistic method, the politics of displacement and transnational collaboration.
This symposium was co-produced by the City of Toronto, RUTAS Festival and Aluna Theatre, Hemispheric Encounters, The Space Between Us, the aabijijiwan New Media Lab at the University Winnipeg, and Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology at York University’s School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design.
