What does a meaningful collaboration between settler and Indigenous artists look like?
CBC Arts | December 9, 2020
Anishinaabe visual storyteller Nyle Miigizi Johnston and multidisciplinary artist Joel Richardson are working together to explore answers to the question "what does a meaningful collaboration between settlers and Indigenous people look like?" Their first project tells the story of "Canadian artist Tom Thomson and his imagined friendship with the fictional character of Indigenous war veteran George Nadjiwon," and their recent work, "2057 Neyaashiinigmiing International Time Portal," connects the stories of Indigenous communities in Canada and Kenya. This project has been documented by filmmakers Kelli Kieley and Natasha Naveau.
