ABOUT THE PROJECT

Eastern Edge (St. John’s, NL) presents SHED Talks, the meta-conference which features a series of conversations in shed-like structure. Focusing on new modes of creative expression by NL, NB and NS-based Indigenous multi-disciplinary artists, musicians, poets, and performance artists, this panel aims to create an inclusive entry point into the process of revisiting, telling and re-telling of personal and collective histories while navigating the art world.

As Indigenous and Indigenous-settler artists working together in Atlantic Canada, we have connections to our ancestral territories, but aren’t necessarily fixed to one place, as we draw from the lands, waters, and Traditional knowledge systems of Turtle Island. Working in this particular era, what does it mean to be a contemporary Indigenous artist, and how does Atlantic Canada inform our multi-disciplinary practices.
