 Radical Dreams of Equity and Kindness

 

What kind of world do you want to live in after Covid-19? 

 

Share your dreams

 

CreativeUTO is a socially conscious incubator of creative thinkers. We are launching the inaugural issue of Symposium, a print anthology, and video exhibit. For our first issue, we have chosen the theme: Radical Dreams of Equity and Kindness. We acknowledge that Covid-19 has dramatically disrupted all of our lives. We see, too, that there are deep inequalities that undermine our core values and beliefs.

 

We invite all artists across media to contribute their visions of a better future. Because dreams are the first step to bring better to life.

CREATIVE COMMUNITY + PRODUCTIVE VIBES

Podcast – George Floyd Where Do We Go From Here? Toronto Artists Discuss

Will the world ever get back to normal? 

What is normal anyway? 

We repeat the same mistakes over and over again. We tolerate a lot of wrongs, turn a blind eye to many things. We want to live comfort and peace so we sweep these things under the rug. 

I think in the past few months we have been tested at an unprecedented scale, one crisis crescendoing into another. We're all coping with the fallout from the pandemic in different ways; these protests and riots are a reflection of a world that’s fed up.   

In this special episode of CUTO podcast, we discuss racism and the aftermath of George Floyd, compounded by the insanity of COVID 19. We discuss how we got here and how it is impacting society.

Where do we go from here? 

In this discussion, we touch on the people responsible, the economy, racism, the pros and cons of socialism, dictatorships, we try to make sense of it all. 

As a black man, there is obviously emotional weight added to these discussions. I understand I have to change the system from within but a part of me wants to go out there and riot.

This conversation, alongside others, allowed me to put my thoughts together in the blog below. 

Insight - The Babylon System Part 1: George Floyd

The discussion, below, happened at the height of the George Floyd riot as we started our weekly creative meetup.  This creative meetup is a gathering of CUTO artists who come together to collaborate on installations and exhibits. It is exclusive to artists who have participated in CUTO projects this year. 

The purpose is to collaborate on art installations and exhibits. We’re working to launch the next event in August.
