Drop-in Art Workshop

Painting with Gendai and Alcove Centre

Gendai G.E.D. (Guerrilla Equity Development) and Esker Foundation invites all youth to join us on March 29, 2023, for a collaborative art-making session and conversation about arts and community with guest local arts non-profit Alcove Centre for the Arts.

This is an open, drop-in space for youth to meet, chat, snack, listen to music, relax, hang out, and (if you want to) make art!

The Alcove Centre for the Arts is a non-profit organization in Calgary, aiming to increase accessibility to the arts by offering workshops, artistic showcases, and a creative social space or a collaborative art space.

Gendai (Marsya and Petrina) are an art collective based in Tkaronto/Toronto dedicated to racialized artists as the next generation of cultural leaders, radical thinkers, and visionaries.

We hang out and chat with BIPOC, racialized, immigrant, and other equity-deserving youth who are involved in the arts in order to learn from each other, dream together, and build pathways towards futures that are more fair and equal to all. We connect youth to other youth and local artists who also dream of equitable futures. We create the space to make art together, or simply just be together.

About Gendai (Guerrilla Equity Development)

Throughout its twenty-year history, Gendai has supported experimental curatorial and organizational practices, whilst creating space for East Asian artists and artists of colour. As Gendai’s newest stewards Marsya and Petrina are investing in the future of racialized arts leadership through collective research and practice.

This program is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
