CANOES at Indigenous Arts Festival

The Bentway
250 Fort York Blvd

7th Generation Image Makers is an Arts and Mural Program for Indigenous youth in downtown Toronto. Since 1995, this multidisciplinary arts program has been committed to proving accessible and professional quality workshops and opportunities in a culturally safe and supportive environment.

On June 21 and 22 from 10am to 2pm, join the 7th Generation Image Makers on the Bentway Skate Trail as they transform 3 canoe ‘skeletons’ into works of art, reflecting Dana Claxton's CONTACT Public Installation A Forest of Canoes. These canoes represent the hidden waters and streams within Toronto and the waterways we are no longer able to travel.

For full details and related programming, visit the Bentway's website.
