In conjunction with FADO's International Visiting Artist programs, we invite local performance artists to participate in a new networking initiative. This is a chance for you to come meet visiting artists in person, and talk to them (and a few of your local colleagues) about your work. FADO proposes DOCUDRAMA, an informal evening where up to 10 local artists can meet to talk about their work and show 10 minutes of documentation. Because space is limited and we want to keep the sessions intimate, participants MUST RESERVE IN ADVANCE.
Local artists are invited to present short talks about their work in the presence of Thai artist and curator Chumpon Apisuk, who will be visiting Toronto with various representatives of EMPOWER and 5 - 6 Kumjing dolls. EMPOWER's project of migrant dolls will be exhibited at the Global Village (Metro Toronto Convention Centre) as part of the XVI International AIDS Conference taking place in Toronto August 13 - 18, 2006. EMPOWER's visit is assisted by the Toronto Sex Worker group Stella.
