Please join us for the Public Open House for Woven In: Indigenous Women’s Activism and Media from 10am-5pm. Free admission, all day.
Throughout the generations, Indigenous women across Turtle Island have been at the heart of grassroots activism and resurgence. The role of women has been of vital importance since time immemorial – safeguarding homelands, nationhood, sovereignty, and culture – despite the shift towards patriarchy that started with colonization. Woven In: Indigenous Women, Activism, and Media celebrates the intergenerational continuum of grassroots leadership and anticolonial organizing led by women through advocacy, communications, artistry, and community initiatives.
Exhibition runs from NOVEMBER 19, 2022 – MAY 7, 2023.
Curated by Gerry Ambers, Marianne Nicolson and Siku Allooloo.
