PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Indigenous, Black and People of Colour communities are disproportionately underrepresented in all media. How do past images unearthed from personal and institutional archives come to shape new stories?

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Home Made Visible commissioned Indigenous filmmakers Lisa Jodoin, Jennifer Dysart, and Nadine Arpin are hosting a workshop exploring the idea of the personal archive. In this workshop participants are asked to bring an object of significance to share with a small group. Through activities and exercises, the facilitators will guide workshop participants in expressing the memory and story attached to those objects to then produce a new personal archive: a digital audio/photo file, a mailable postcard or an attachable memory tag.

This is a hands-on workshop and every participant will go home with leave both their original and new archival objects.

Registration is required as space is limited to eight participants.

Organizer of Home Made Visible: Sioux Lookout (Screening + Workshop)

We are Toronto’s longest running free community film festival. We are dedicated to showcasing local and international independent works relevant to people from all walks of life, with a focus on inviting those of us from low income and public housing communities. The films we present break stereotypes and show that no one place or person has just one story.
