(en)compass | art from the PH 1:1 mentorship program

Opening December 21, 2021

(en)compass: art from the PH 1:1 mentorship program is an exhibit created in a first-time partnership between Project: Humanity and Propeller Art Gallery. Featuring the compelling works of both youth artists-on-the-margins and their artist-mentors, this show tells the story of how creative minds came together online over the past year and a half in pursuit of connection, self-expression and affirming relationships within an arts practice. (en)compass movingly conveys — through works ranging from painting to photography, digital creations to audio installations — how the arts have become a hope-inducing way to navigate pandemic waters. 

Private Event (closed to the public): December 21, 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Gallery Tours: December 22 and 23, 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Registration through Eventbrite. A Project: Humanity representative will be available on-site to speak about the work being presented. Capacity is limited to 8 attendees.

Brodi-Tyler Dawson (he/him)

Hi my name is Brodi-Tyler Dawson. I am an ambitious proud and out queer Transgender man that goes by many labels including, craftsman, artist and creator.

I have a wide variety of skills and hobbies such as painting, knitting, sewing, felt, clay, woodworking, card making, and jewelry making. My favourite hobbies are pen making, toy / game making and drawing.

I thrive on creating items and experiences that spark joy creativity, and excitement. I have successfully made 2 professional board games and a puzzle. My goal is to change the way we play by immersing ourselves in complex understandings of stimuli.

I have over 10 years of experience in woodworking and have been crafting since I have been able to. I have a constant drive to learn and improve on myself and never limit myself to one mode of expression. 

“”No matter how big or small, creation transforms the world”.

No more news for Nancy by Kiera Forde

Keira Forde (she/her, they/them) and Shayna Linds (she/they)

Grit and Glitter is an auditory experience where listeners are invited to dumpster dive through a sea of sounds, from adaptive technology and occupational therapy, to the alphasmart 3000 and the resource room.

Through this disorganized disco, the listener will experience a scattered timeline of humans who embraced childhood adversities with a sense of grit and a ton of glitter leading to the magical discovery of empathy towards one’s selves as humans with disorders.

Away in a Manger – Child Come to Me by Samia O’Day

Sarah Grace Okello (she/her)

Medias Res/Not Done is about the feeling of hope in the day to day support of the journey. Different parts of me grew up in this city, I went through moments of wanting to leave and wanting to show others what’s within. I know it’s okay to go. I just won’t wait till I’ve left to ponder the experiences I’m currently living through. The moments of what and who was there not necessarily for me but they were being in the same place I was being. What’s held on to me is the hope for better in our everyday. This film serves as a record of holding on as we travel through.

Tee (she/her)

Tee is a contemporary emerging Visual Artist whose current practice is in painting. Tee is currently exploring her style of work by using strong graphic lines and monochromatic colour schemes. Tee often identifies her art as a way to shift and through her internal journey as a young person to create more ease and flow in her life. Tee looks forward to continuing to develop her artistic practice within the arts that will also incorporate her passion for alternative medicine.

When I’m creating a piece I normally feel inspired by whatever I may be doing. If I’m listening to a specific song I get inspired by the topic of the song. My music taste really does affect the results of my paintings. I listen to alot of grunge music and rap, so that’s why my art may be considered dark. I also like to watch a lot of videos on social issues. Like recently I’ve been really interested in educating myself on the negative effects of fast fashion. This process has helped my internal journey as an artist by giving me an opportunity to show my art to the outside world. I also like to display my art in how I present myself.

My art really is a reflection of me and people who might relate to me, and who I’m inspired by.
