Performances!

 

The Rap Battles for Social Justice has organized many events starting in the spring of 2015. With live hip hop music, veterans, aspiring rappers as well as first-time performers display their original lyrics aiming at systemic oppression wherever it may lurk. With our mission for popular education to a beat - we aim to forge community ties through consciousness-raising in the form of art and entertainment. This showcase will feature a line-up of our local artists

Montreal Monochrome is an annual conference organized by the Fabulous Committee (anti-oppression) at articule. It aims to address the mis- and under-representation and systemic oppression of marginalized groups in Montréal’s contemporary art milieu. The event works toward imagining and nurturing new and existing bonds, solidarities and friendships between Indigenous artists, thinkers and cultural workers and their racialized allies. 

This 7th edition seeks to explore the emotional, physical, mental and socio-political ramifications of what it means to shift focus and/or (re)gain control. How might we understand shifting focus, on which scale, and in which ways? Through which mediums and interventions? What is it to (re)gain control of one’s narrative, body and/or psychic space? Which new realities can be created or remade? See the full programming here.
