[the dream we form by being together]
"As part of Canada’s 150th year, the Borealis Gallery opens The Dream We Form By Being Together. This exhibition centres on the theme of reconciliation and emerges from the awareness that art can play a central role in the process. Drawing from indigenous practices and understandings, the show seeks to rebalance colonial narratives within the much larger story of this place we now call Canada."
The exhibit runs until October 1, 2017. If you are in or near Edmonton, check it out!
The exhibit consists of artwork, which each piece accompanied by a description, a related "call to action" from the Truth and Reconciliation Committee, and either quotes from or a video with indigenous people responding to the art.
