Over the course of 2022, the Ways of Making artist ensemble at National accessArts Centre examined the ways artists with disabilities can enter into conversations about Indigenous histories and learnings about Indigenous artistic practices. The artists have been working with guest faculty to explore various themes including local Indigenous histories, the importance of representation, artistic practices, and issues of cultural appropriation.
The ensemble continues to share through this exhibition – Hey You! Land! – at the Leighton Art Centre. With 80 acres of rolling Foothills grasslands, spectacular Rocky Mountain views, native flora and fauna, and a gallery in A.C. and Barbara Leighton’s historic home, Leighton Art Centre is a perfect place to invite the public to reflect on our connection to the past, present, and future in Treaty 7.
