Rabbitry Call

The Red Clay Studio Society (RCSS) is the local arts organization that brings you the White Rabbit Arts Residency & Festival, Circus of the Normal, Radio Cafe, and more. We couldn’t do any of this without the continued support of ALL OF YOU!

We’ve been blessed to have such an amazing team of volunteers, new and old, show up year after year, as well as the continued support of The Rabbitry.

What is The Rabbitry, you ask? The Rabbitry is a special, dedicated group that supports White Rabbit Arts and its evolving programs with monthly donations. Founded by alumni of the residency, Rabbitry members are committed to creating ongoing opportunities for artists to collaborate with each other and the natural environment.

Support from the Rabbitry means that creating accessible programming for artists is less vulnerable to shifts in government arts funding, and that we can have greater creative control over the future of our work. We are very grateful to these individuals and couldn’t do it without their help!

How we Build: On Craft and Blackness


A panel discussion featuring four Black artists discussing craft and collaboration.


Juanita Peters, Letitia Fraser, NAT chantel, and Sobaz Benjamin
Facilitated by Francesca Ekwuyasi
Friday, October 18, 2019, 7 – 9pm
Art Bar + Projects, 1893 Granville Street, Halifax

(K’jipuktuk/Halifax) Visual Arts News, in partnership with Nocturne: Art at Night and MSVU Art Gallery, presents the panel discussion How We Build: On Craft and Blackness. Based on curator Pamela Edmond’s quote “I am no longer interested in a seat at the table. I now want to build my own table” this panel will focus on the concept of Black artists creating work for a Black audience.

With the purpose of illuminating ideas on intergenerational knowledge and craft sharing as a means of fostering solidarity and resistance within and between the various Black communities in Nova Scotia, this panel will engage in ideas on locating pleasure, joy, and celebration as a survival tool while navigating structural oppression.

Join panelists Juanita Peters, Letitia Fraser, NAT chantel, and Sobaz Benjamin in a discussion facilitated by Francesca Ekwuyasi on Friday, October 18, 7 – 9pm at the Art Bar + Projects when we will also be launching the Fall 2019 issue of Visual Arts News magazine.

Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome. Gender neutral washrooms on site. ASL interpretation available upon request, please contact us in advance to book. Code of Conduct available here.
