Join us for a lively conversation about the role of arts in Truth and (re)Conciliation. Have the arts lagged behind the TRC conversation or is art at the forefront? What is our role as artists and creators and how can it be reimagined?
For this REDTalk, Anishinaabe creative Ryan McMahon, Métis visual artist David Garneau, and Jessica Bolduc, Anishinaabe from the 4Rs Youth Movement will explore the implications of Truth and Reconciliation within the context of the Arts.
Hosted by Sandra Laronde, Artistic Director of Red Sky Performance.
Ryan McMahon (Anishinaabe) is a writer, comedian, media maker and community activator whose storytelling style is irreverent and boundary-pushing.
David Garneau (Métis) is a Professor of Visual Arts at the University of Regina. His practice includes painting, curation, and critical writing.
Jessica Bolduc (Anishinaabe-French) creates opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous young people to come together in support of reconciliation that is relevant to young people.
