You are invited to participate in the inaugural community outreach activity of the Longhouse Labs, a program that aims to offer the most prestigious Fellowships for Indigenous artists in Canada, providing a destination for Indigenous knowledge sharing, skill development and creative practice.
The Longhouse Labs, in partnership with CAFKA, KWAG and UWAG are hosting two one-week long residencies at the University of Waterloo. You are invited to meet the artists and learn about and engage with their work, and to hear from Logan MacDonald, Canada Research Chair, Indigenous Art and Longhouse Labs Director, as he shares his vision for the Longhouse Labs program. As well, you can get a sneak peak at the Longhouse Labs dedicated space with “hard hat tours” of the demoed space.
The event will take place from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. with formal comments at approximately 1:30 p.m. The event is a Tract Collective, a group of regional Haudenosaunee artists/activists doing a large bead project, as part of their Big Ideas presentation.
Special thanks to the Waterloo Region Community Foundation – Racial Equity / Musagetes Fund for their support of the Longhouse Labs Project.
