Presented at SAW Gallery in partnership with Gallery 101, House of Paint, Migrante Ottawa, and St. Paul University.
Through four art installations (photography, digital collage, interactive installation, and performance), this project will use art and advocacy to raise awareness and build community ties to shed light on the barriers experienced by individuals with precarious immigration status in Ottawa. In collaboration with local artists, community and grassroots organizers, we will highlight and challenge vulnerabilities that result in fear of accessing city services.
Exhibition walking tours will be provided in English and French.
Food and children's activities will be provided.
