Information wants to be free, but there are those who know and don’t want you to know. For reasons at times admirable and at times nefarious (mostly) gatekeepers have put a lock on things over the centuries. But Station Gallery curator Olex Wlasenko is hosting an art talk about all those bits and pieces banned from view, searching the nooks and crannies and creases of history to get you closer to the truth. It will all be revealed during his art talk.
Wlasenko’s art talk heralds Freedom To Read Week which runs Sunday Feb 24 to Saturday Mar 2 this year. This is the 35th anniversary of the movement to oppose censorship and promote freedom of expression. Freedom to Read Week is a project of Canada's Book and Periodical Council.
In 2016, Freedom to Read Week, reached out to some Canadian Booktubers and content creators to share what Freedom to Read means to them.
