Bring your family and friends to experience the imagineNATIVE Film + VR Tour at the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, Ontario, from April 26-28!
We are excited for you to join us and explore the power of VR technology to transport you to the world of the immersive VR experience, This is Not a Ceremony, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, allowing you to witness the stories of two Indigenous men wounded by the colonial tradition of systemic racism. Join us at the Woodland Cultural Centre Museum April 26-28 from 11am – 4pm to experience This Is Not A Ceremony!
To accompany this experience, we will be screening Kaatohkitopii: The Horse He Never Rode, produced by Colin Van Loon. This POV documentary, narrated by director Trevor Solway begins with his earliest memories of his grandfather Sonny Solway, a lifelong rancher and “Indian Cowboy.”
This one-of-a-kind experience will ignite your senses, spark your curiosity, and create unforgettable memories. Don’t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity to connect with Indigenous stories through the magic of Film + VR.
Have you visited the museum to see our current exhibition? Make sure to visit before Doug Maracle: Come Walk With Me is gone!Doug Maracle is Mohawk Nation, Bear Clan from Six Nations of the Grand River and is known around the world for his craftsmanship and artist works. It wasn’t until more recently that his hometown discovered his talents.This exhibition celebrates the diversity of Doug’s body of work. The work includes wood carvings, prints, and pen & ink sketches meshed with a sense of humour, history, and place.The viewer will learn about what inspired Doug’s artistic practice to encourage visitors to understand the process of sculpting techniques and encourage a younger generation to become interested in the connection between art and narrative of the Haudenosaunee culture within the context of the history of art in Canada. The exhibition provides a point of departure to open the context of craft vs fine art, identity, and process.This exhibition will be closing before we’re back from our Christmas break and unfortunately cannot be extended. Be sure to visit the museum before December 22 to see Doug’s incredible work.
