The Treaty Six Contemporary Art collective (TSCAC) is pleased to announce the Treaty Six Contemporary Art Festival, taking place on June 11 in Cold Lake, Alberta.
The event is held at the Cold Lake Energy Centre and will feature an all-indigenous line-up of visual artists, performance artists, poets, and musicians. There will also be food and artisan vendors on-site.
“While the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing health restrictions forced us to postpone the event from its original September date, we at the TSCAC have been working tirelessly since,” said Event Manager Gabrielle Whiskeyjack. “And so we are making this announcement with great honour, as many people have come together to support us. Thank you for your interest in the event, the collective, and Indigenous art.”
“My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back” -Louis Reil.
The Treaty Six Contemporary art festival was created to provide up-and-coming Indigenous artists in Treaty Six Territory an opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional setting.
Additionally, the goal of the collective is to spread art and inspire artistic practice in those whose access to an artistic community is limited.
