Many Voices: Bellevue House National Historic Site

Parks Canada proudly presents Many Voices Indigenous Art at Bellevue House National Historic Site, initiated by the Georgian Bay Ontario East Field Unit. Many Voices: Indigenous Art, as part of LandMarks2017/Repères2017, is invested in the idea that narratives of confederation can shape increasingly inclusive histories that centre diverse voices and Indigenous land-bases. Our shared stories, at their heart, are about land, belonging, language(s) and culture(s) that stem from our interconnectedness with the earth. Many Voices weaves together a selection of artworks and live performances that place focus on our relationships to one another. Works in this exhibition are on loan from the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Aboriginal Art Collection.

Many Voices takes place June 15th – October 7th at Bellevue House National Historic.This indoor exhibition will showcase a representation of LandMarks2017/Repères2017 artist works as well as a selection from the Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada’s Aboriginal Art collection.
