For the first year, the DMG is offering a four-month educator residency to Scarborough-based artist Kachely Peters.
During her residency, Peters is collaborating with artist and community leader Anthony Gebrehiwot, to create Meditations on Masculinities and Love, a six-month online program. Guided by artist and community leader Anthony Gebrehiwot, these intimate conversations provide the space for racialized folks who identify as men and non-binary to explore topics surrounding masculinities. The program looks to bell hooks’ text The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love and Gebrehiwot’s exhibition From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing.
Peters will also research, plan, and create enlightening programming and outreach related to the gallery’s current exhibition, Three-Thirty.
