About the London Arts Council
The London Arts Council is committed to working in peace and healing with all Indigenous people. We work closely with the surrounding First Nations communities: Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee-Delaware Nation.
About the Project Funding
This project was made possible because of funding received through FedDev Ontario’s Canadian Experiences Fund. The Canadian Experiences Fund is a two-year national program to support communities across Canada in creating, improving or enhancing tourism products, facilities and experiences. Tourism London partnered with Chippewa of the Thames First Nation and the London Arts Council on this project.
About the Team
This virtual space represents a commitment from the London Arts Council to foster relationship building, as the consensual sharing of knowledge concerning Indigenous history, culture, and philosophy is the first step in this process.
Curator Summer Bressette and Designer Katie Wilhelm continue to collaborate on this virtual space as part of the London Arts Council team.
