For the first time since Fogo Island Arts’ inception in 2008, a group exhibition of work by Fogo Island and Change Islands community members is displayed in the Fogo Island Gallery. The works featured in the exhibition have been selected in response to an open call for submissions encouraging artists to consider the positive potential of the current moment to write new stories together. The works explore themes ranging from individual and collective futures on the island in a post-pandemic world; to local connections with global currents and perspectives; to the relationships between economy, ecology, and community; and to more nuanced reflections on our present moment.

The program for the exhibition includes: a talk with the Director of Toronto’s Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Gaëtane Verna and a talk with Newfoundland-based artist and academic, Pam Hall.
