CARE Visioning: We'd Love to Hear From You!
The CARE project is a new framework focused on the development, writing and sharing of monthly thematic workshops and the facilitation of community-centric and formative artistic events presented at the Khyber in partnership with South House. Together we will explore concepts such as, but not limited to: anti-oppressive arts practice, the importance of self expression and art for our health, appropriation and assimilation aesthetics in the creative sector, supporting survivors of violence through a trauma informed framework, artists resisting tokenism as well as tokenism vs. invitation in an arts space setting.
Through CARE we intend to create new space for: collaboration, mentorship, and peer-to-peer skill sharing. We aim to reduce barriers that artists, community members, arts organizations face re: creating and attending arts-related events. We want to encourage artists to use our space, and would love to include your brilliance in our design process of the new CARE curriculum that is being developed by Bria Miller (Program Coordinator) for 2019!
This form is meant to:
- Collect information about groups/individuals (inside or outside of HRM) that we should reach out to for collaboration.
- Bring together a multiplicity of voices, hear many dreams, ideas, skills and BRILLIANT artistry you would like to ascertain or see showcased through the CARE project.
- Inform the development and distribution of other future resource materials and workshops that are relevant to you, as part of CARE.
- Gather ideas for closed space workshops or events that we could potentially support. (ex: Black Joy Sunday)
- Highlight the existing barriers you may experience entering art spaces, to hopefully be able to address your concerns and support you to be here to participate as you wish.
- Encourage more people (especially prioritizing voices of marginalized artists and community members) to give feedback, and also participate in our future workshops and events offered as part of the CARE Program.
- Be a resource to help us work towards providing a space where artists feel deeply supported in their creative visions to create, collaborate, skill share and provide peer-to-peer support to one another.
We aim to be a space that elevates marginalized voices and narratives, that also provides a platform to artists that incites dialogue about current happenings we care about and/or want to learn more about as a creative community. Filling out this form will help to inform the development of the CARE Project and its components as a whole to ensure that we operate from an intersectional, anti-racist and trauma informed framework.

What is the Khyber?
The Khyber’s mission is to foster critical thought, facilitate creative dialogue and support artistic experimentation through the public presentation of contemporary art. The Khyber actively and continuously will hold a pro-survivor framework and an intersectional, anti-oppressive, anti-racist analysis in its programming and operating.
The Khyber is a shared and public artist-run centre that is run collectively by its members, which you can be! Members can propose events to take place at the centre outside of our primary exhibition and residency programming.
Location: 1880 Hollis Street
