FREEDOM TOURS

Camille Turner is a Jamaican-born, Toronto-based media/performance artist and educator. She is the founder of Outerregion, a company that produces intercultural exchanges and dialogue.

Turner has presented interventions, installations and public engagements throughout Canada and internationally. Her current focus is bringing hidden and erased histories to life through place-based explorations. Examples include HUSH HARBOUR and The Resistance of Peggy Pompadour, sonic walks that animate historic Toronto’s Black geographies; TXTilecity, an award-winning educational app that maps Toronto through its textile histories (created in partnership with Year Zero One and [murmur] and produced by Textile Museum of Canada); and TimeWarp, an Afrofuturist cellphone adventure in which participants use their smartphones as time machines in order to experience the future or past. Turner’s current project engages historians, archivists and citizen researchers to help recover the stories of enslaved people.
