Art in Action ! At Concordia University

14 Nov

On November 11th, the girls from F.A.C.E and the Nomad Box participated in the Vernissage of the expo Art in Action! at Concordia University, an exhibit by militant artists using mixed media to illustrate various themes of social justice and on the environment. The Nomad box was part of the themes « Public space and  the common good », and « Feminism » .

What an honor to be featured amongst all these artists  🙂 If you are interested, Art in Action! Is running until November 15th 2012, in the Hall building of Concordia University, on the 7th floor. Between beautiful illustrations on food sovereignty, an interactive « sticky wicky », and beautiful, albeit sad, paintings on the abuse encountered by First Nations in Canada, there is something for every taste… and theme!

The Nomad box wanders the streets in August

27 Août

It might be the end of the summer vacation, but the Nomad box is wondering the streets of Montreal. We spent a day under the scorching august sun on Saint-Catherine street and Wolfe, during the commercial fair which took place all week end in the Village.

The girls participating in My City, My Safety! were able to continue exercising their right to the city by re-claiming the street through temporary/street art initiatives.

Thanks to la Société des commerçants du Village for its support!

Thank you Rebecca and Virginie for making sure the box didn’t fly away, adding a human dimension to their piece 😉 and thank you Olivia for the musical accompaniment!

On my May 15th 2012, F.A.C.E participants gathered to choose the final photo and video material that they will use to put together their media project, the « Nomad Box » (title still in the works)

Here are some drawings the girls made to help with the conception of the box, for a bit of a sneak peak at what it will all look like… Thanks to the girls for making our trip to Reno Depot a bit more interesting, when we tried to explain what it is we were building to the nice handy man… And a giant thank you to Fanie Saint Michel from Conscience Urbaine, who spent so much time doing the video editing, and turning the girls’ photo shoot into a work of art!!
