Disruption and internal process may be critical to making art more accessible, potentially eradicating outdated systems and supporting social change. In this session, Wyandot Elder and multidisciplinary artist Catherine Tàmmaro, photographer Edward Burtynsky and artistic producer Umbereen Inayet will share their stories and experiences with art as catharsis and will discuss the future of public art. Investigating the spiritual, social and emotional narratives motivating their work, they will explore how art can depict the impact of our actions – and potentially stimulate a process of deep healing.
