For the 2024 Biennial season, TBA is pleased to partner with R.I.S.E. Edutainment to deliver Storytelling sessions and facilitate workshops for school groups and visitors. R.I.S.E. Edutainment Storytellers are practising artists working with movement, spoken word and poetry, and will offer embodied Storytelling sessions and workshops “rooted in the power of art as a tool for healing and social change” at our main hub at 32 Lisgar Street. Full day in-person school visits will take the form of guided tours in the morning followed by a short lunch break and afternoon workshops. Set in the vibrant and changing West Queen West and Junction Triangle neighbourhoods, students will explore themes that emerge from the 2024 exhibition, Precarious Joys.
