Amelia Rising Sexual Assault Centre of Nipissing says it is thrilled to host Sexual Assault: The Roadshow, which is a pop-up, participatory art gallery, housed in a retrofitted, glass-fronted shipping container for the month of October.
The Roadshow will serve as a meeting place, studio, and exhibition site for our community to demonstrate the power of art, to “talk back” to sexual assault.
North Bay stops:
- October 3-9 Big Medicine Studio
- October 10-15 North Bay Police Service
- October 16-22 Nipissing University
- October 23-29 North Bay City Hall
All are invited to the Opening Ceremony on October 3, at 5:30 pm at Big Medicine Studio, 161 Couchie Memorial Drive.
Meg Lozicki Paulin, a local multi-disciplinary installation and performance artist will be co-creating workshops at each of the stops. Art generated will be on display for the final exhibition at City Hall and may be chosen to travel to the Roadshow’s next stop.
Call 705.840.2403 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for workshops.
Amelia rising invites the public to stop by during community open house hours (please visit ameliarising.ca for a full calendar of events). Visitors will have an opportunity to explore the gallery, chat with Amelia Rising Sexual Assault Centre of Nipissing’s staff and/or volunteers, as well as to make their own art.
