There is still time to register for this exciting project.
Placemaking is the work of traditional knowledge holders, Elders, youth, and community members who embody and share stories about place, as well as practitioners who create physical places, such as artists, architects, planners, and designers.
The purpose of this public symposium is for practitioners to share knowledge and experiences about Indigenous placemaking in Toronto and Aotearoa New Zealand, to support and build a network of Indigenous placemaking practitioners, and generate broader dialogue in an inclusive and welcoming environment.
The event will be held on the Toronto Island (Treaty 13-a), the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and a gathering place of many nations. The venue is Artscape Gibraltar Point, a community cultural hub just steps from the water. The symposium is part of a week-long program involving Indigenous placemaking practitioners based in the Toronto area and from Aotearoa New Zealand.
