Something to
Think About: VOTE

We are continually bombarded with information in the form of news, entertainment and advertising, from everywhere around the globe. This noisy barrage of undifferentiated data keeps us in an agitated and perpetually distracted state. 

Having the time and mental space to think and reflect feels increasingly like a luxury that is out of reach. How then can we focus on anything in a sustained, expansive and profound way, enabling us to make informed decisions about complex issues, and to act in an empowered way?

Something to Think About attempts to address this question by providing a venue for thinking, talking, and collaborating. It is both a physical and a virtual space for people from myriad disciplines and backgrounds to meet and focus, slowly, on one subject at a time. Thematic projects will deal with issues of real contemporary significance in a hopeful, positive and inclusive way.


With a Federal election underway and Canadians going to the polls on October 19th, there is an uncharacteristic surge of passionate discussion taking place across Canada. The majority of Canadians desire a government that better reflects our values and priorities. We want our humane, generous, just and peaceful Canada back. We want our freedom of speech and democracy back. 

Something to Think About’s inaugural project VOTE is an exhibition of text-based works by some of Canada’s most talented artists and designers. All of the works speak subtly or overtly to a desire for change; for leaving the past behind; and for freedom of expression and democracy. 

VOTE is intended to inspire hope, and to encourage people to participate in the democratic process at a critical moment in our collective history.
