NOT SO ALONE
album + ZINe Publication and Launch
THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 2021
The NOT SO ALONE project includes a zine publication and an audio album! Formatted in the style of a radio broadcast, the album features disgruntled callers, local business commercials, and our very own "DJs" guiding you through it all. Listeners of the album and readers of the zine will be able to immerse themselves in the complex, vibrant imaginary city of our radio station alter-ego, "The Continuist Underground." Be sure to keep an eye and an ear out for all the little Easter eggs that connect the album, zine, and our social media to the same wacky, wonderful world. Turn the page, tune into our "broadcast," and remember - you're not so alone when you're listening to The Continuist Underground.
To celebrate our most ambitious project to date, we spent weeks organizing a massive event to match! With artist performances, games, and a grand raffle with some SWEET prizes from local student businesses, the virtual NOT SO ALONE launch party was an electrifying evening that brought the Ryerson art community together even in our state of isolation. Relive The Continuist's last event of the 2020-2021 school year by visiting the links below!

Trapped in a confined space, forced to confront images or versions of ourselves that are warped, twisted, and stretched beyond our recognition - this past year has often felt as strange as a summer fair funhouse, where reality is suspended and the only thing to do is move forward. With that in mind, we wanted to give artists a space in which they can feel free to go out of their comfort zones, and express their experiences of 2020.

In this issue, we're looking to highlight artists and creatives who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or as people of colour, who want to use their art to speak out on the issues of racism, violence, and representation which are so prevalent in our lives today. SPOTLIGHT is just the first step of our ongoing commitment to supporting the diversity of artists here at Ryerson.
