This is only the second Winnipeg Mural that we are aware of that has been
PLANNED as a travelling Mural to be relocated and reinstalled onto other City
One of the lovely aspects of THIS initial location is that the wall is well lit
at night for the enjoyment of evening viewing!
Jeannie White Bird (at unveiling): "Experiencing the creation of this
Mural these past three weeks has been a whirlwind of amazing spiritual energies
with my friends, Elly Hart and Charlie Johnston. Drawing from our collective
experiences and being mindful of the important messages, Charlie and I reflected
on our positive working relationship, and how it's helped pave a path forward
for my own future mural creations. We've learned how equity involves providing
space for people who haven't had opportunities in other main stream projects. We
also have a clear understanding how public art projects dealing with anti-racism
and anti-oppression must not be lead non-indigenous persons, but rather, be
supported so that the indigenous voice is amplified on a higher public radar.
I'm grateful for the months and months of lessons and knowledge Charlie and I
have been sharing with one another. We are both student and teacher in the
journey we've walked together on."
"In turn, it's been equally important that i empower other indigenous persons
like my young talented friend Ellen who is new on her journey of artistic self
discovery. We've each found ourselves in the good healing space."
