Art in Access

Art in Access – Cole Swanson (born in Calgary, AB, Canada; lives in Toronto, ON, Canada) and Anne Zbitnew (born in Dartmouth, NS, Canada; lives in Toronto, ON, Canada) have co-developed and led a number of community-based art collaborations at Humber College, Toronto and within their extended communities. Art in Access brings communities together to make art and respond to questions of access in art education. The second-iteration at Humber College works to build an accessible arts program that is rooted in community-building.
