Learn how Algonquin artists work in relation to land, territory and story.

Join Algonquin artists Claire Brascoupé and Jobena Petonoquot in conversation with Danielle Printup, Indigenous Cultural Engagement Coordinator at CUAG, to discuss relation to place through creative interventions.

Learn more about their practices and the vital role of artmaking as a means of memory-keeping, custodianship, and care. Together, they will explore how their work embodies ancestral ties to land, territory, and story, continuing the reverberation of Algonquin presence across unceded territory.

This event is free and open to everyone. Light refreshments included.
