Art+ Fall Showcase
The ART+ Fall Showcase will celebrate equity, diversity, inclusion and pluralism (EDIP) in the arts, including local artists from all Western and non-Western art disciplines. It would be an opportunity to create cultural exchanges between artists belonging to equity-seeking groups (ESG) and the local community, including but not limited to Indigenous, Black, people of colour, immigrant, refugee, disabled, 2SLGBTQI+ and women+ artists. In addition, each showcase will have a capacity-building component to continue building sustainable artistic practices for artists belonging to equity-seeking groups.
We have an exciting lineup of local artists and artists groups: Yulia Lisitsyna(Visual Arts), Tamiris Paes Souza (Violin), Esmeraldas de Colombia (Colombian Dance), Stuti Mukherjee (Indian Dance), Lubna Mousa (Visual Arts), Jack Tzekov (Visual Arts), Camila Reimers (Visual Arts), Bonita Eloise Ford (Performance), Christina Tzekova (Visual Arts), NortNsur (Music).

I first discovered my artist self at a very young age in Baghdad, Iraq. Since then, I have moved to many places and met many faces to which I attribute my work inspiration. My paintings are reflections of a personal journey that strives to showcase my path that led me to where I am today.
Camila Reimers was born in Chile and has lived in Canada since 1980. She is a multidisciplinary artist presently engaged in textile arts, storytelling, fiction writing, and online teaching.
Stuti is a Bharatanatyam is an exponent based in Ottawa. Bharatanatyam is one of the eight major South Asian/Indian classical dance forms and a cultural treasure originating from the southern part of India, Tamil Nadu.
My fascination with Eastern Orthodox iconography dates back to my childhood. Later on, as an art student in Bulgaria, I had the opportunity to work with a restoration team on cleaning and restoring 17th and 18th century icons from churches and monasteries across the country. This experience inspired my first copies of original icons.
