Pieces of Process #3
PIECES OF PROCESS is an event series all about creative process. The intent is two-fold: to destigmatize creativity for would-be-creatives whose anxieties about failure hinder their ability to create and as a means of demystifying creative process to contextualize art. Artists will showcase their works then tell us about the process itself—challenges they encountered, inspirations fueling the projects, or anything else pertaining to the topic.
Remember, the final result is the iceberg’s tip. Come see what lurks below the water’s glassy surface.

Gio Gio (J.T Media x Giostino Giotezio) is a director and visual artist wandering through life’s experiences, endlessly searching for Paradise. GioGio’s style can be defined as a mixture influenced by Anime, Nature, Retro Technology and Surrealism. With two short films and appearances at various Montreal art shows such as Art Jam and RAW, GioGio continues to develop and bring his work to light. GioGio has collaborated with numerous artists and strives to one day form a collective that reshapes how music and film come together.
The event will take place on the third floor auditorium of Atwater Library. Please enter the building through the side door if the front entrance is locked. Entry is pay what you can; suggested donation 5$. Please give generously as all proceeds go to the artists.
We acknowledge that the land on which the event takes place is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka (Mohawk), which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations.
