The Jack Layton Chair, Toronto Metropolitan University Libraries, Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Community Services and Toronto Metropolitan University present Crafting Community: A Symposium on Arts Practice & Research.

The symposium brings together artists and scholars to explore intersections of arts practice and academia – how they clash and/or converge. The symposium features hands-on workshops on Oct. 19, hybrid panel discussions on Oct. 20, ending with a roundtable session on Oct. 21 to discuss emerging themes and reflect on the symposium.

Crafting Community reimagines how to engage community arts in/with the humanities and social sciences  to bridge between   community and the university 

The symposium takes a community arts based approach that works to connect the creative and scholarly work of artists, community workers,  students and educators. Through a community arts framework, participants engage with community, research and pedagogy during hands-on interactive workshops and panel discussions. 

Crafting Community: A Symposium on Arts Practice & Research is supported by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
