La Centrale Toolbox (Boîte à outils)

Exhibition of the communication committee

Window exhibition from July 8 to July 15, 2021

Presentation of the window exhibition on July 8 from 4 to 6 pm in front of La Centrale*.

For the past few years, La Centrale has been doing organizational work to develop policies and resources with the goal of making La Centrale a safer and more inclusive community space. While these documents exist and some must be signed to be a member of La Centrale, access to them is not always apparent. La Centrale's communication committee has therefore taken up the mantle of improving the distribution of these documents. Organized as a working group, the members of the communication committee worked both collectively and in small groups, online and in person, pooling their reflections on the practices and issues of equity and their diverse and rich skills in illustration, graphic design, and silk-screening to realize this project.

The committee thus proposes printed, illustrated versions of La Centrale’s anti-harassment policy and basis of unity. Out of these collaborative sessions, the committee also developed a code of conduct for anyone engaging with the artist-run centre, presented in the form of a poster that will be displayed at all times at La Centrale. To complete this set of documents, the committee has also worked on an inclusive glossary, a constantly evolving list that will be visible on our website and in a video version during the exhibition. All of these documents make up the La Centrale Toolbox (Boîte à outils) exhibition presented in the window of La Centrale.

All documents are available for free here : https://www.lacentrale.org/en/equity/la-centrale-toolbox-boite-a-outils/
