Call for Submissions:

 


94 calls for action resulted from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s enquiry into the policies and operations of Canadian residential schools, the experiences of children sent to them and the resulting impact. More than 6200 statements were recorded from residential school survivors, describing the nightmare lived by so many Indigenous people. Two Rivers Gallery acknowledges this terrible chapter in the history of First Nations. With an open mind and an open heart it wishes to explore the process of healing and drawing-together at the core of the reconciliation process. Two Rivers Gallery is seeking Indigenous perspectives on this process and invites Indigenous artists living in BC working in any media to respond to this call and propose three to six artworks exploring reconciliation.

Please complete this form and send it along with some information about yourself and the work you do, and images of up to six artworks. The Gallery will notify those whose work is selected for exhibition. Artists whose work is selected will receive an exhibition fee.

This exhibition will be co-curated by Two Rivers Gallery Curator George Harris and Independent Indigenous Curator Rose Spahan. Working with Indigenous People through the arts we will embed ritual within our process to create social change. We will effectively do our part in participating in ritual (smudging, drum circle, prayer and food offerings) as a way of opening the path to a positive cultural exchange.
