Strategic Plan Represencing the Rural STRATEGIC PLAN NONNONMEDIA Return to Homepage Chilliwack Biennal The Strategic Plan Curators Dinner November

The Work of the Institute is structured as a series of curated projects that may range in duration from the length of a phonecall to several years. While some are based in established disiplinary practice, GICA encourages artists and curators to explore speculative and transdisciplinary approaches. To propose a project, please send an email and allow 2-3 weeks for a response.

The Future
Part III of the Strategic Plan Project


In a social economy where public space can be bought and sold as an asset, the definition of island as community is in constant danger of being appropriated by the logic of the theme park. The rhetoric of community planning purports to stem the tide of cash, or at least negotiate its direction of flow, but the vision of the well-heeled has a habit of narrowing the horizon for the rest of us. Which leaves us to wonder whether the future will be as friendly as some would have us believe.
