The wait is over! We are very excited to announce Meeting Waters: Cross-Cultural Collaborations on Environmental Racism with Ingrid Waldron as part of Nocturne 2020: Echolocation curated by Lindsay Dobbin! We are also grateful to work with Bria Miller who created the poster and portraits of each of the project participants. This collaborative anchor project and subsequent panel discussion is co-presented with Visual Arts News as part of our Nocturne + VANS panel discussion series!

This online event will center Black and Indigenous solidarity through cross-cultural exchanges on environmental racism in Mi'kma'ki and will bring together speakers and performers to 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 with the support of Arts Nova Scotia
