“Art is our great imagining. Politics does what is here, concrete, in front of us. Art takes us in to the future.” –Wanda Nanibush
This intensive residency offers space for Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers and artists to discuss what the ‘future narratives’ of the country now called Canada may be as influenced by the wisdom and knowledge of Indigenous contemporary thought and artistic practice. This national project is reaching 150 years and it is time to ask what future does it have based on where it has gone. How does this land’s much older history influence its future? How can art dream this future? What stories will open up a new future beyond national colonialism? As we approach 150 what is the vision for what those stories are and how they can be told and supported going forward. Read more visit site.
Deadline is next week
