MAWA: Amy Karlinsky


Feminist Pedagogy and Art Education?

Come to MAWA, 611 Main Street, on Friday, December 3, at 12:00 pm, for the First Friday Lecture on Lessons from Real Life by Amy Karlinsky.

Finding the female voice, making space, celebrating the female body, creating independent thinkers, rewriting ritual, reflecting on and asserting needs are aspects of feminist pedagogy. 

Join art educator Amy Karlinsky as she discusses strategies and looks at projects undertaken with female students and artists at a university, the public school system, a cultural art centre, an adult women’s group and a woman’s shelter.

Amy Karlinsky is a writer, curator and teacher with experience in galleries and museums in New York State, Manitoba, Ontario, British Columbia and Nunavut.  She has taught in rural, northern, public and private schools, as well as universities. 

Her art criticism has appeared in Border Crossings, Canadian Art, the Winnipeg Free Press and more.
