Online Launch of Pîkiskwe-Speak Art and Film Installation: An Invitation Conversations in Reconciliation

Date: Sep 30, 2020

Announcing the launch of the online Pîkiskwe-speak Art and Film Installation: An Invitation to Conversations in Reconciliation. This online installation allows visitors to view the remarkable artwork and award-winning film that Beth Wishart MacKenzie and Lana Whiskeyjack shared with Canadians across the land on their nationwide tour through 2017-2019, a tour funded by the Canada Council for the Arts 2017 New Chapter initative to commemorate Canada's 150th Anniversary.

Please take this opportunity to study Lana's artwork, including LOST MY TALK and 15 other pieces, and to watch Beth's documentary film, LANA GETS HER TALK (37 minutes), online at https://pikiskwe-speak.ca/. You are invited to join the Conversation in Reconciliation we began on tour, through word or through art, as we work together for the healing of our nation.

The film LANA GETS HER TALK was funded by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Canada Council for the Arts 2017 New Chapter initative.

Pîkiskwe-speak Online was made possible with the support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Alberta Media Arts Alliance Society
