Event description

Description

Presented in partnership with Otahpiaaki 2019: Indigenous Beauty, Fashion & Design Week.

Mekinawewin, to give a gift is rooted in a circular gesture of exchange. It is an invitation into relationship, as a guest to Treaty 7, and an introduction into the deep humility of belonging. Cardinal offers her third instalment of this generative project through a process made and shaped by many hands. As a result of stories told aloud, mixtures of water and botanical pulp collide and reconfigure themselves as paper sheets where these stories reappear.

Participants will be invited to contribute creations generated in this workshop to the exhibition of Mekinawewin, to give a gift, presented by Otahpiaaki at the Central Library, 3rd Floor, from 4-9 November 2019.

Tamara Lee-Anne Cardinal is a multi-media artist and community activist who traces her ancestral roots back to the Saddle Lake Cree Nation and the once-German occupied lands of Ukraine.


Registration essential. Opens 2 October at 11AM.
