In Conversation: Charlotte Zhang & Friends of Chinatown Toronto

April 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

To bring about a skill-sharing dialogue between artist and organizer, Charlotte Zhang will moderate a Q&A with Toronto-based community group, Friends of Chinatown TO (FOCT). Zhang will inquire into FOCT’s first-steps to organizing in a working class community, formulating demands, and strategizing around campaigns. With the tools and skills cultural workers have at our disposal, how do we direct our participation, privilege, and artistic strategies towards developing tactics and resisting neoliberal entanglements?

The conversation will be followed by a round of questions submitted from the public. Please submit your questions for FOCT in advance by emailing aaron@imagesfestival.com.
