The Mush Hole Project was an immersive, site-specific art and performance installation event that took place at the Woodland Cultural Centre (Brantford) in 2016. This collaborative project aimed to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action and to preserve, query, and reveal the complex personal, political, and public narratives around Canada’s residential school system, in general, and the Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School (at the Woodland Cultural Centre).
Join the Woodland Cultural Centre for a special screening of the film that was produced in 2021 as a second iteration to the 2016 project. The Mush Hole Project and now Dejidwaya’do:weht (We are Thinking of it Again) seek responses from artists that question the following: Apartheid, Assimilation, Decolonization, Education, Genocide, Intergenerational Trauma, Mohawk Institute, Nourishment, Reconciliation, and Truth.
