Queering the Trail Badge

I created this badge as part of Stephanie Springgay and Sarah E. Truman’s WalkingLab project, for a Queering the Trail walk on the Bruce Trail in Spring 2017. WalkingLab is an international research project with a goal to create a collaborative network and partnership between artists, arts organizations, activists, scholars and educators. Rupturing commonplace understandings of what it means to move, the various research projects and events activated at WalkingLab draw on new materialisms, critical race theories, and queer theories to attend to issues related to trans, geos, and affect.

These badges were initially awarded to participants in the walk, which included interventions along the way to decolonize and queer the trail. This second edition is now available to a wider audience. Ready to iron on to your favorite hiking accessory for your next excursion!

Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week: Palm Oil

March 4, 2015

After a long hiatus, I am reviving my Rad Teen Print of the Week series as Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week, to share the amazing work from university students and other post-teens that I’ve been working with here in Toronto. I first forayed into this zone a few years ago with Lauren Jurysta’s Free Pussy Riot silkscreen.
