Community Arts Projects in Halifax, NS

The 4Cs Foundation is please to announced that we have awarded the Centre for Art Tapes a SEED grant for the project Tiny Takeover: Kid Critics. This project will create an exhibition of media art for kids in collaboration with CFAT’s next-door neighbours Tiny Lab (a neighbourhood daycare). 

Tiny Takeover: Kid Critics will be an exhibition of media art works that deal with tactility and play. The kids at Tiny Lab will be working with their teachers and local artist Em Lawrence to learn about Media Art and critique the work. The project will culminate in an exhibition in August 2018 curated by CFAT Programming Director Tori Fleming, featuring a critical text publication written by the children as well as an audio guide voiced by the children.

Please contact Tori Fleming for project information:
