Call to Action #83: Reconciliation Art Project

Event Dates: 
Jan 31st - 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Reconciliation Art Project on display in the Collingwood Town Hall Council Chambers
 
The Town of Collingwood is honored to bring a Reconciliation Art Project to Council Chambers. It's titled Call to Action #83: Eight Indigenous and Eight Non-Indigenous Artists' Quest for Truth and Reconciliation. It is named after the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Action #83 which calls upon indigenous and non-indigenous artists to undertake collaborative projects and produce works that contribute to the reconciliation process.
 
Inspired by this Call to Action, Project Curator Mary Louise Meiers brought together eight indigenous artists and eight non-indigenous artists (including local artist Peter Adams) in a quest for truth and reconciliation through sharing, learning, and collaboration.
 
In the spirit of reconciliation, the Town of Collingwood, with the Wawasayguming Arts & Culture Board, is showcasing aluminum prints of the artworks in Council Chambers from January 14 to March 8. The public is invited to view the panels during Council and Committee meetings, or most Thursdays in January and February between 11:00 AM & 1:00 PM, or by contacting artsandculture@collingwood.ca.
