The initiative was headed by the Latin American Art Centre Collective and consisted of a series of four symposiums with the community to develop art services to serve artists. Aconsejate II was presented in partnership with Aluna Theatre, Alameda Theatre Company and aluCine Latin Film + Media Arts Festival.
These discussions focused on collecting experiences, perceived challenges/needs and possible solutions in the form of services, events and products.
1. Artists relation to art organizations
2. Art Institutions and Community programming
4. Generating a market for Latin American Artists in Canada
5 . Towards a Latin American Arts Centre in Toronto
Each meeting included a grant writing workshop and were all held at different locations throughout the City of Toronto: Lula Lounge, Bavia Arts, Casa Maiz and San Lorenzo Community Centre.
The event served as an opportunity for artists to network, raise awareness about other art projects and initiatives, and inform about other art organizations active in the local community.
