This event is the public face of a two-day workshop, Knowledge & Networks: Atlantic Allyships, initiated by the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, Concordia University. The participants are researchers, curators, and artists from the Atlantic region and elsewhere in Canada; they share a commitment to social transformation and its artistic expression by deepening knowledge of collections and archives and engaging with community in creative practice. The workshop’s organizing committee was Sharon Murray, Archives Advisor, Council of Nova Scotia Archives; Erin Morton, Dean of Arts, Professor of Art History, St. Francis Xavier University; Carla Taunton, Associate Professor in the Division of Art History and Contemporary Culture at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University; and for the Jarislowsky Institute, Martha Langford, Research Chair and Director, and Johanne Sloan, Deputy-director and Professor in the Department of Art History. Of anecdotal interest, Martha Langford and Sharon Murray are proud NSCAD alumnae.
