In her own words…
For the past eight years Zoë Kreye has produced collaborative community arts projects, independently, collectively, and within institutional structures in Montreal, Vancouver, Berlin, New York and Istanbul. Her work looks to engage the public in relations beyond aesthetics, with the goal of building inclusive, bottom-up associations that have the potential to be small catalysts for change within dominant social systems. Often looking outside the realm of art, her projects take the form of clubs, workshops, adventures, discussions and social events. Each time the focus is put on making connections that encourage people towards self-reflection and a deeper engagement with society. In 2009, she completed a MFA at the Bauhaus University Weimar, specializing in community engagement and participatory strategies. She is currently based in Vancouver and teaches studio and social practice at Emily Carr University of Art & Design.www.zoekreye.com
