IMPORTANT: Doors will open at 6 p.m. and entry will be first-come, first-served. Ticket holders must arrive by 6:20 p.m. (with their printed or mobile ticket) to claim their seats. As many people order tickets and do not attend, we have released more tickets than available seats. There will be a rush line for those without tickets. Any unclaimed seats will be released to the rush line at 6:20 p.m.
Please note: For public health and safety, the University of Toronto requires that masks be worn in indoor spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained. Masks are therefore required to attend this event. Thank you for your cooperation.
Presented by Doors Open Toronto in partnership with the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto
Indigenous knowledge keepers, architects and artists from across Turtle Island will gather to share their artistic work and involvement in creative projects situated at local post-secondary institutions. This is happening at a time when universities are re-imagining their role in collective education and knowledge, as well as in sharing narratives of Indigeneity, settler colonialism and Canadian identity. These presentations will explore the role of art and architecture in Truth and Reconciliation and the artists’ process of creation from their respective Indigenous cultures and points of view.
