Background

Created by artists Hadley Howes & Maxwell Stephens (Studio of Received Ideas), Conference at the Council House will draw attention to the rich Indigenous history of the area and region that is now known as Mississauga. The artwork will feature an artistic replica of the tower that tops the historic Council House, built 132 years ago, on the Mississauga of the New Credit First Nation Reserve in Hagersville. Thirty birds cast in bronze patinas will be placed on and around the tower to signify the diverse community that inhabits the area today.

The artwork is supported through a contribution of $199,000 from the Department of Canadian Heritage. Ce project a été rendu possible partie grâce au gouvernement du Canada.
