New Visions / Old Land: Troubling Canada 150 Screening and Panel
Film screening, panel discussion, launch of online publication, youtube channel, podcast
It is the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation in 2017, but the land and the people are much older. The New Visions / Old Land project asked artists to reimagine what “Canada” means, to put forth new visions of what the idea of Canada could or should be.
Four original films by artists were commissioned for this project with accompanying music and soundtracks. These works will be presented at Traill College (310 London St, Peterborough) on September 30th at 7:30 pm.
Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with the artists and program curator Professor Kelly Egan, "Troubling Canada 150." EC3 will also launch an online publication about the project, a podcast created by Peterborough Independent Podcasters and a Youtube channel dedicated to these films.
Refreshments will be served. Free admission. Everybody welcome!
