We are committed to making Lands to Travel Through accessible to our many communities. As such, registration is by volunteer donation only.
As we are unable to gather in Mohkínstsis / Calgary, we would like to bring the land to you. As a registered guest of the gathering, you will have the option to receive a care package intended to help you be in relation to the land you are not able to travel to. This care package includes items such as a handmade ceramic cup made from found clay by artist Lauren Chipeur, bison jerky and tea carefully crafted by Stoney Nakoda Elders Phillomene & Tracey Stevens, a risograph comic by Lauren Crazybull, and more. The care package is limited to the first 300 registrants.
Lands to Travel Through is an artist-run gathering that will take place online. This event is organized by the Alberta Association of Artist-run Centres (AAARC) and is presented in partnership with the Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference (ARCA).
Lands to Travel Through will share the work of artists, writers, community organizers, and others who are contributing to the ongoing work of re-imagining our world. Lands to Travel Through will feature core presentations by Faye HeavyShield and Dr. Kim TallBear, alongside curated projects by artist Christina Battle, Ociciwan Contemporary Art Collective, and Lands to Travel Through’s planning committee.
Renegotiating our relationship to resources by centering conversations, practices of care, and strategies for recovery and remediation, Lands to Travel Through presents a series of opportunities to come together and design models for how to be, otherwise.
Lands to Travel Through is made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Government of Alberta, Calgary Arts Development, and the Rozsa Foundation.
