Abstract (English)

"Mzinkojige Waabang (To Carve Tomorrow) is an Indigenous art festival of exhibitions held in conjunction with the Revisioning the Indians of Canada Pavilion: Ahzhekewada (Let Us Look Back) conference, 15-16 October 2011, produced by the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective (ACC). The conference is co-produced by the Aboriginal Visual Culture Program at OCAD University. Mzinkojige Waabang literally means to carve tomorrow and can also mean he/she is carving or fancy carving tomorrow. The theme captures the intent of the festival in showcasing the work of Indigenous artists and curators and the multitude of ways they are actively creating our contemporary Indigenous cultures and imagining our future. It also illustrates the ACC’s commitment to making sure there are spaces, critical and physical, for Indigenous artists tomorrow." -- p. 5.
