Free Event About Aboriginal Women in the Arts: Using Art to Reclaim Traditional Roles

Planet IndigenUs at Harbourfront Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada– in partnership with Brantford, Ontario’s Woodland Cultural Centre – has explored indigenous people’s ancestry and cultures through Indigenous artists.

Planet IndigenUs has successfully:

  • raised public awareness
  • broken stereotypes
  • fostered a cross-cultural dialogue between Canadians
  • given prominence to the voices, stories and cultures of Indigenous people that are largely absent from the Canadian narrative
  • provided education, outreach, youth projects, commissions, professional development for artists and their communities and internships throughout Ontario and Canada
