A small zine fair at Clinton Hill-based art space Recess highlights the importance of Indigenous creators and their work.
By offering a space for projects like R.I.S.E, Recess vitally promotes the idea of creation as a necessarily social process.
A number of arts organizations and groups are creating spaces for people to gather, think, talk, and listen.
I have to be honest: as a child, I wasn’t a big fan of recess. All is well and good when you’re running around the dodge ball court — until someone gets pegged in the face. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been a big fan of capture the flag, and who doesn’t love a little fresh air, but that shit can be brutal. That’s what the word conjures for me, at least: 100 wild young children running around, consumed by the wild thrill of unmonitored free time. It just always seemed so stressful.
