#WeAreIndigenous

Created in partnership with Humber College's Aboriginal Resource Centre

Rethink. Reorder. Reimagine.

Storytelling in its diverse expression - whether through song and dance, performance, film, fashion, painting, beadwork, or other forms of creative expression - is a visionary process in that it challenges us to rethink, reorder, and reimagine the world. Storytelling provides us with ingenuity that echoes the voices of ancestors, speaking to the histories, experiences, and lifeways that made them the people they were.

The beauty of interconnection, the lessons and challenges of the day-to-day, provide a glimpse of who we could become. Building on themes of temporal continuity, activation, and relatedness, #WeAreIndigenous foregrounds the creative sovereignty of each artist while also exploring culturally grounded specificities that resonate between them.

Join the Virtual Artists' Reception

Thursday, April 30 from 2-4pm ESD

#WeAreIndigenous is a conversation, a way to bring you the personal stories of our featured artists but also a way for you to connect with them, and with each other. On Thursday, April 30th we invite you to join us online from 2-4pm while we premiere a video conversation between the featured artists about what it means to be an Indigenous artist today. Afterwards, we'll open the event up for your questions during a live panel discussion. 

We ask that you RSVP for this free event via Eventbrite - the link and instructions on how to participate will be sent by email to everyone who registers.

Engage with the artists of #WeAreIndigenous

Every week through April and May we will be sharing exclusive video interviews and original artwork on our Instagram and Facebook pages using the hashtag #WeAreIndigenous. Be sure to comment, ask questions, and share your reactions to the posts.
