Applications for Turbulence II are now closed.
The E.W.o.C. (Equity for Women of Colour) Project is facilitating Turbulence II, a mixed-media storytelling workshop series for emerging artists, who identify as Muslim women of colour. The 11 week (22 hours) series will guide 15 youth artists to create a collection of pieces through the interdisciplinary practice of: illustration, poetry, and painting, and will incorporate re-purposing materials, such as fabric. The series will conclude with a gallery exhibition, showcasing the stories of the diaspora experience and disrupting harmful narratives.
The workshop participants will be paid for the duration of the series. This is part 2 of a pilot project, which first took place in the summer of 2019, in partnership with Art Starts and Scarborough Arts.
Funding for this project has been provided by the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council and ArtReach.
