Water Knowledge

A workshop led by social practice artist KC Adams. In Anisninaabe teachings, women are water carriers and are taught Gage’gajiwaan; water flows forever and everywhere and all around. This residency is about passing on water knowledge bundles to better understand our relationship with water. The first week Adams will lead the participants onto the land so they can receive knowledge bundles through elders, texts, walks, and workshops with Anishinaabe-Métis lawyer Aimée Craft. The second week, participants will be encouraged to produce individual work based on the knowledge bundles they received.

The residency is open to visual artists, writers, critics and scholars who identify as women and non-binary.
