We are making a call out for new and existing works from both emerging and established artists, who identify as Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit, and Métis). We will also be accepting art submitted from the Settler community, as long as it fits within the broad theme of Reconciliation. It is our hope that the exhibit will generate inter-cultural dialogue with Indigenous and Settler communities, to explore themes such as traditional life, treaty making, residential schools, protection of mother earth, returning to culture and spirit, 60’s scoop, child welfare, incarceration, and the intergenerational effects from colonialism.
