Re-Presenting Ourselves as Treaty Peoples
at Art Gallery of Peterborough, 250 Crescent St.
Led by Jill Carter(Anishinaabe/Ashkenazi). As a researcher and theatre-worker, Jill Carter works in Tkaronto with many Indigenous artists to support the development of new works and to disseminate artistic objectives, process, and outcomes through community-driven research projects. This workshop places the Settler and Indigenous body, alike, into direct confrontation with a difficult history that has been ‘written over’ by colonial occupation and invention. Within these territories, we all occupy in a liminal space—a space between now and then, a space between now and later. Workshop participants are invited to experience and commit to a process through which we might retreat into what Metis Curator David Garneau has termed “irreconcilable space”—those spaces in which to repair the split-mind and from which we might re-encounter and re-treat with each other and the biotas that sustain us with generative action powered by good intention.
