unsettling histories

WWG is 40-years old, and we are taking this opportunity to critically reflect on our histories. The gallery has been transformed into a community-engaged documentation of Indigenous arts presentation at WWG, which will be used as fodder for a conversation between artist Tanya Lukin-Linklater and curator Serena Kataoka about the implications of Indigenous art histories in the coming year.  


Mural painting

Young artists, especially from Indigenous communities, are invited to join visiting artists Chief Lady Bird and Aura to participate in a workshop that will lead to a public mural to be installed in downtown North Bay. October 27-29.
