ART SHOW AND PERFORMANCE?

Testify: Indigenous Laws + the Arts is a celebration of Indigenous Laws as expressed through art. The dialogue invited by the “Testify” project puts the idea of reconciliation into practice by creating a space for Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians to dream a way forward which respects and reflects the diversity, strength and hope embodied within Indigenous traditions.
