Website Launch: A Treaty Guide for Torontonians
VIRTUAL and IN-PERSON options available
Join us in celebrating the launch of the website of the book A Treaty Guide for Torontonians with the Talking Treaties Collective and Elder Dr. Duke Redbird as part of Treaties Recognition Week. The Talking Treaties Collective is composed of Ange Loft, Victoria Freeman, Martha Stiegman, and Jill Carter. Ange will lead the audience through her Dish Dances Movement Workshop as part of the event.
Part of Jumblies Theatre & Arts’s multi-year Talking Treaties project led by Ange Loft, A Treaty Guide for Torontonians is an artful examination of the complex intercultural roots of treaty relationships in the place we now call Toronto.
What does it mean to be a treaty person in Toronto? Scholarly and historical research is complemented by outdoor activities, theatrical pursuits, and contemporary writing prompts that help readers explore the modern-day subjective and physical embodiment of treaty relations. This combination of art-based research and Toronto-specific knowledge inspires an active approach to treaty awareness through embodied learning tools.
This event is in partnership with Toronto Biennial of Art, Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages at York University, Art Metropole and Jumblies Theatre & Arts.
Copies of the book, A Treaty Guide for Torontonians, are available at the Museum Shop and through Art Metropole.
The Textile Museum’s exhibitions will be open and accessible until 8pm following this launch event.
