Confluence Arts Collective presentation
in partnership with PASAN + Elizabeth Fry Toronto + lemonTree creations
Confluence Arts Collective is a group of multidisciplinary artists who have come together over a shared investment in dignity, humanity, and justice for people experiencing incarceration. Through artistic processes, Confluence Arts Collective strives to create moments of community convergence, self-determination and self-expression for criminalized people. We recognize that criminalized people are disproportionately those living in poverty, Indigenous, racialized, queer, transgender, women, and themselves victims of crime. We aim to open up humanizing spaces to explore and articulate who we all are outside of, and because of, criminal convictions, social marginalizations, and situations of incarceration.
Current members and associate artists: Amina Mohammed, Ashley Riley, Carvela Lee, Fiona Raye Clarke, Jackie Omstead, Jamie Milay, Lisa Bozikovic, Nikki Shaffeeullah, Sasha Tate-Howarth, and Sonja Rainey.
