Art As Activism: Truth, Survivance, and Resilience

 Art As Activism: Truth, Survivance and Resilience, is an exhibition about our collective journey toward decolonization, through the submission of artworks that reflect personal experiences and challenge the conventions of institutional space. 

The exhibition will open on August 2 in conjunction with the performance of John Galt and The Instant City, a musical theatre production that navigates Galt’s background as a writer and Colonist. Both the exhibition and the performance will question Galt’s positionality in the context of our local Indigenous history and the impact of colonization that continues to shape Guelph today.
