Humber Galleries welcomes Danica Evering, Education Officer

Humber Galleries welcomes Danica Evering to the newly created role of Education Officer. Over the coming months, she will learn about and engage with Humber’s communities to reach students, faculty, staff, neighbours, and the broader field of contemporary Canadian art.

Danica is an artist, researcher, and curator. Through writing, sound composition, and artistic programming, her work thinks through difficulty and belonging, reaching out intentionally, and complicating narratives. She brings her experience with responsive education and experimental projects to foster unexpected connections between people, art, and ideas. She is a part of the editorial team of Publication Studio Guelph, a sibling studio of an international publishing network that attends to the social lives of books, and a board member of Kazoo! Fest, a new music and art festival and year-round music series.

Previous to this, she worked for almost four years at Musagetes, an international philanthropic organization dedicated to connecting art to multiple communities. Her work at Musagetes drew connections between art projects, communities, and the local context of mid-sized cities as she developed creative strategies and responsive programming virtually and in person. She is in the final stages of obtaining her Master of Arts, Media Studies at Concordia University, Montréal, where her thesis investigates how artists and organizations critically approach outreach.

Humber Galleries are situated on the traditional territories of the Ojibwe Anishinabe people in Adobigok, meaning “Place of the Alders” in the Ojibwe language. This region currently encompasses several First Nation communities including families from the Otter, Turtle, and Amik (Beaver) clans.

The Galleries are a pair of engagement points for Humber students, faculty, community members, and neighbours: North Space (North Campus) and L Space (Lakeshore Campus). Humber’s polytechnic model is the “third way” between the university and the trade college; it blends the creation of new knowledge and the solving of real world problems. Because we are located within Humber College’s polytechnic environment, Humber Galleries is a space where contemporary art and polytechnic learning come together and influence each other. Humber’s core values of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, adaptability, and collaboration guide our mandate.
