Critical Transformations: A Forum on New Futures

We are living through unprecedented times that present the challenges of the pandemic, an economic recession, and rising fascism, alongside the opportunities of social justice, creative problem-solving, and bold thinking.

Curated by Ceci Moss, this monthly series of online roundtable conversations invites visionary artists, curators, activists, designers, architects, and arts organizers around the globe to discuss their work in creating groundbreaking new models for the arts sector from September to December 2020. Critical Transformations is generously supported by the Vancouver Foundation.
