Creative Resident: Lara Chamas 

Testing Grounds, 391 Queen St

As an artist, knowledge, learning, sharing, and research usually take different modes, not limited to just reading and writing. Where does this fit in within an institution?

Reflecting on my time in academia, during my time in the library I have pondered; what constitutes knowledge, what makes knowledge valid when it doesn’t fit in a box? Where does cultural knowledge, storytelling, anecdotes, gut feelings, oral history go? And why isn’t it automatically good enough?

Join Lara for a discussion and sharing around the 'dining table'. Light refreshments provided.

Proudly supported by the Besen Family Foundation.
