Collectives role-model unique models for self-management towards shared artistic outcomes.  Have you ever wondered what the experience of being in an art collective is like or how they get started? Join us for presentations by Michael Magnussen of YTB Collective and Holly Aubichon of Harbour Collective as they speak to the role that Art Collectives have played in their artistic careers and beyond! Presentations will be followed by a thirty-minute Q&A period, where we look forward to hearing your questions on the topic.

About the Webinar

Michael will speak about their experience with creating collectives and the role that collectives fill in the arts sector, as an alternative to more hierarchical models. Through exploring their past work, they will offer practical tips to start your own collective or collaboration. They will also speak to a variety of models that exist in Canada and share their experience collaborating with international collectives through their collective YTB.

Holly will reflect on centering collective-building and experimentation through her ongoing engagement with collectives. As an emerging artist, practicing in collaboration has offered a support network and has led to invaluable opportunities and personal growth for her as an artist.

About the Presenters

Michael Goto Magnussen I am an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and community builder originally from rural Saskatchewan and now based out of Edmonton, Alberta. I hold a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from OCAD University in Ontario and a BFA from Concordia University in Quebec in Studio Arts. I am the co-founder and collective member of YTB Gallery, a nomadic artist-run center for emerging artists and curators founded in Toronto in 2014.

Holly Aubichon (she/her) investigates topics of urban Indigeneity and how ancestral knowledge ​reaches​ urban Indigenous people through ​memories;​​ land, and body. Her practice includes painting, writing and curation. She identifies as Métis, Cree ​from her Paternal side, ​and Ukrainian, Irish, and Scottish ancestry​ from her Maternal side. Aubichon was​ born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan. Her Indigenous relations come from Meadow Lake, Green Lake and Lestock, SK. Aubichon’s practice is laboriously reliant on retracing familial memories and connections.  She graduated from the University of Regina in 2021 with a BFA, minoring in Indigenous Art History. Aubichon was the Saskatchewan recipient of the 2021 BMO 1st Art! Award. Aubichon is the current Artistic Director for Sâkêwêwak Artists’ Collective Inc​.​
