Collaborating for Truth

A beautiful example of collaborating for truth has been our work with Atlohsa Family Healing Services for both the 2018 and 2019 Atlohsa Peace Awards.

Collaborating for Truth brings voices together to help change the narrative. The London Arts Council uses its platform to collaborate for truth is needed in our community, city, province, country and around the world.

​The awards celebrate those who have made outstanding contributions, propelling social change in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation. Through media, arts, education and advocacy these trailblazers truly exemplify leadership in an era of rapid growth and change.

Each Award honours an individual or organization that best represents one of the Seven Grandfather Teachings:

  • Bravery

  • Honesty

  • Humility

  • Love

  • Respect

  • Truth

  • Wisdom

In 2019, in the spirit of the Two-Row Wampum and Two-Eyed Seeing, LAC created Indigenous and non-Indigenous artist collaboratives to co-create a performance and film for the awards evening.

Visual Artists Quinn Smallboy & Sharmistha Kar, Dancers Montana Summers & Avery Hall and Musicians Robin Henry & Mary Ashton performed together during the event. We are honoured to share the film created for the 2019 event by Film Artists Nicole Coenen and Edward Lees.
