Emily Gove is a practicing artist, educator and programmer. Her work is inspired by subculture, folk art, craft, horror and kitsch, and often includes collaboration and community engagement. Emily has worked extensively with various communities including post-secondary students, emerging artists, children and youth, adults and seniors. She has an MFA in Studio Art and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.

*Danica Drago will be performing their piece Pedal Potter at the end of the tour.

About the exhibition:
Featuring: Atanas Bozdarov, Danica Drago, Lido Pimienta, Patterns Magazine, Team Sagittarius
Design + Community includes five projects by emerging designers, artists and design teams who employ design methodologies to consider the potential of contemporary design practices to encourage human connection. The selected projects explore diverse concepts of empathy, collaboration, history, marginalization, and oppression while considering how together we can navigate hope for the future.
