Mass Culture, Mobilisation culturelle.

Mass Culture is an arts support organization that strives to harness the power of research to learn and generate new insights, enabling the arts community to be strategic, focused and adaptive.

Research in Residence

Mass Culture, in collaboration with its partners in this project, provides three exciting new qualitative arts impact frameworks to the arts sector. These new arts impact measurement tools are gamechangers. The result of two years of research, the frameworks provide innovative, effective ways of measuring the impact of the arts in communities and society. They all use methods rooted in respect for a multitude of ways of researching, knowing, being, and creating lasting, meaningful impact. 

Recherche en résidence

Mobilisation culturelle, en collaboration avec les partenaires du projet, présenter trois nouveaux cadres très prometteurs sur les répercussions qualitatives des arts. Ces nouveaux outils de mesure des répercussions des arts changeront la donne. Fruit de deux ans de recherche, ces cadres détaillent des façons efficaces et innovantes de mesurer les répercussions des arts dans les communautés et la société. Ils sont d’ailleurs fondés sur le respect des différentes façons d’effectuer des recherches, de savoir, d’être et de créer un effet durable et constructif.

React, Recreate, Revision

ReAct, ReCreate, ReVision is a SSHRC-funded research project employing arts-based research methodologies to surface and amplify marginalized and suppressed knowledges and resistances. It will explore cultural policymaking gaps and processes with young 2SLBGTQI+ and BIPOC artists as co-researchers, to increase their access and opportunities to make critical contributions to policies that affect them. Together, partners and researchers will mobilize diverse experiences and knowledges to co-create and impact processes of change towards community arts, and social justice informed policymaking. The project is facilitated by a team of artists and researchers from partner organizations including The Institute (a project of Sketch Working Arts), Mass Culture, and OCAD University. The project is coordinated by Dr. Alia Weston and Charlotte Lombardo.
