Headed into this rainy Wednesday and wondering how to get your Nocturne on today?

We have everything you need right here. Today, we want to highlight Meeting Waters: Cross Cultural Collaborations on Environmental Racism with Ingrid Waldron, a collaboration with our curator, Lindsay Dobbin.

This online event centers Black and Indigenous solidarity through cross-cultural exchanges on environmental racism in Mi'kma'ki. Speakers and performers will share stories and experiences of environmental racism through storytelling, dance, spoken word, song, and graphic art. Collaborators will describe their experience and present their original creation in the form of a Zoom event followed by a panel discussion presented in partnership with Visual Arts Nova Scotia

Ingrid Waldron collaborated with curator Lindsay Dobbin to bring together 4 wisdom holders and 4 artists to create collaborative works on 4 locations in Mi’kma’ki:

  • Africville - Irvine Carvery and Rebecca Thomas
  • Pictou Landing First Nation - Michelle Francis-Denny and Kwento
  • Sipekne'katik - Dorene Bernard and Liliona Quarmyne
  • Shelburne - Vanessa Hartley and Leelee Oluwatoyosi Eko Davis
