Arctic/Amazon Symposium

Date : September 29, 2019 Client : The Power Plant Contemporary Gallery

The Arctic/Amazon two-day symposium is co-presented by The Power Plant and OCAD University’s Wapatah: Centre for Indigenous Visual Knowledge. The aim is to nurture dialogical engagement between Arctic and Amazonian Indigenous ontologies while being cognizant of balancing regional knowledges of land/human relations within a globally Indigenous epistemic framework. It also kicks off year-long programming leading up to a larger conference and exhibition organized by Dr. Gerald McMaster in Fall 2020.
