Feminist Art Conference (FAC) is a Toronto-volunteer based organization that brings together artists, academics and activists to consider feminist issues through art. Founded in 2013 by artist Ilene Sova, FAC began initially as an event to link feminist artists from a variety of disciplines with each other while providing a forum in which to discuss our content. A call for organizing help was included in the first call for submissions and a large committee was formed to organize the FAC 2013 on March 9th for International Women’s Day. The first Feminist Art Conference caught the interest of over 70 participating artists and 175 attendees. With astounding interest both nationally and internationally, the FAC Committee made an on-going commitment to facilitating interdisciplinary and inclusive arenas for feminist art. The second FAC occurred on International Women’s Day in 2014 with 90 participating artists and 350 attendees. Now FAC, has year long programming, an artist residency and over 30 community partnerships. FAC 2015 was held at OCAD University (September 23 – 27) and ran over 4 days, with 530 attendees, a two week onsite exhibition, three satellite exhibitions and artists represented from all over Canada, US, Australia, India, South Korea and Turkey.
