INVISIBILITY: INDIGENOUS IN THE CITY – Art Exhibit & Speaker Series

INVISIBILITY: INDIGENOUS IN THE CITY – Art Exhibit & Speaker Series

Thursday, June 27, 2013
Categories: Happenings @ TDSB, Inclusive Schools, Student, Parent, and Community

Aboriginal parents, students, and teachers shared experiences, listened and learned from each other in a 4-day intensive digital storytelling workshop. Working directly with University of Guelph Professor Dr. Carla Rice and her Re•visioning Differences Mobile Media Lab (REDLAB) parents, students and teachers created their own digital stories exploring and representing their experiences of schooling. As a medium, digital storytelling allows Aboriginal people to share experiences and insights using Indigenous storytelling methods of producing and mobilizing knowledge that has resonance within the community. These digital stories will be featured with the work of five Aboriginal artists who address questions of urban Aboriginal identity and education in a unique exhibit at the John B. Aird gallery from June 25 – July 19th. (For a list of events, see below) 

Directed by Dr. Susan Dion Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University in collaboration with TDSB Aboriginal Education Centre, this project is informed by the 2010 research report Decolonizing Our Schools: Aboriginal Education in the Toronto District School Board. The goal of the inVISIBILITY project is to create an Aboriginal space within the gallery where Aboriginal artists, scholars, film makers, teachers, students, and parents will creatively share their experiences and perspectives with stakeholders in education, and the broader community.
