It is only through recognizing the multiplicity of downtown Chinatown can we collectively imagine its speculative futures. \n\n\n\nAccess this free audio tour below and receive a pamphlet with the full walking map and instructions on how to participate in the audio walking tour. \n\n\n\nAccessibility: Questions about accessibility will be answered by Access Producer: jes sachse (Tea Base team member). Please email and your email will be forwarded. \n\n\n\nVarious access features will be added over the summer.

Created by Indigenous artist Jay Soule | CHIPPEWAR from the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation (Deshkaan Ziibing Anishinaabeg)\, Built on Genocide is a powerful visual record of the 19th-century buffalo genocide that accompanied John A. MacDonald’s colonial expansion west with the railroad. In the mid-19th century\, an estimated 30 to 60 million buffalo roamed the prairies\, by the late 1880s\, fewer than 300 remained. As the buffalo were slaughtered and the prairie ecosystem decimated\, Indigenous peoples were robbed of their foods\, lands\, and cultures. The buffalo genocide became a genocide of the people. \n\n\n\nWorking from archival records\, Soule combines installation and paintings to connect the past with the present\, demanding the uncomfortable acknowledgement that Canada is a nation built on genocide. \n\n\n\nBuilt on Genocide Poster Series\n\n\n\n\n\nI AM\, poster by Jay Soule | CHIPPEWAR\n\n\n\n\nBuy the Posters\n\n\n\n\n\n\nPrecious Resource\, poster by Jay Soule | CHIPPEWAR\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nLuminato 2021 Built on Genocide ASL Description\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nEvent Supporters\nPresented by:\n\n\n\nGenerously Supported by:Larry and Judy Tanenbaum and Family\n\n\n\nWith Generous Assistance from:\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn association with:Harbourfront Centre\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nExplore the Built on Genocide Audio Tour Here\n\n\n\n\n\nArtist Jay Soule uses Toronto as a canvas for his Indigenous art and activismThe Globe and MailRead More\n\n\n\nMeet the Artist behind the anti-racism billboard on Spadina.

Museum of Water image by Clara Peltier. \n\n\n\nMuseum of Water Ontario\n\n\n\n\n\n\nDate & Time\n\n\nMuseum of Water Ontario is an ongoing digital project culminating at Luminato 2022. \n\n\n\n\n\n\nLocation\n\n\n \n\n\n\n\ \n\n\n\n\n\nAccessibility\n\n\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nVisit\n\n\n\n\nMuseum of Water began in the UK as a collection of individually sourced contributions of water that told stories of the people and places it came from\, intimate and institutional reconsiderations of this precious substance. In this latest iteration\, undertaken in collaboration with a collective of Indigenous artists in the place we now call Canada\, the artwork strives to simultaneously acknowledge\, sit with\, move with\, and evolve with the layers of past and present colonial history and contexts embedded within both the water and land we rely on for survival. This sonic cyber un-mapping is an invitation to simultaneously enter into a conversation\, and gesture towards building a collective capacity and stamina for action in support of and in service to water\, precious water knowledges\, and water access.  \n\n\n\nResponding to one of the most critical issues of our days\, Museum of Water Ontario questions and cherishes the interconnections between the human and non-human worlds. The project will introduce an interactive and virtual experience in October 2021\, which will grow and continue across 2022. \n\n\n\nAt this time\, given the ongoing climate where this place now known as Canada continues to have non-generative relations with Indigenous peoples\, the land\, and the waters\, the collective would like to encourage audiences to show their support by donating to the Indian Residential School Society. \n\n\n\nAbout Um of Water (web app)\nthis work is a sonic sharing of water wavelengths by people in relationship with water and land. \n\n\n\nwe open as a work in progress\, with the intention that we can grow this together and learn from each other over time and with water. For the moment this is a desktop experience only\, the mobile version is coming soon. \n\n\n\nthe collective is inviting Indigenous peoples and allies to sit with water and to spend time in a practice of deep listening. as the Um of Water grows\, audio recordings of this experience will be able to be uploaded and heard when visitors scroll over the digital map. this collective action of deep listening and sharing is intended to create a sonic cartographic experience that centers the voice and sounds of water – amplifying and asserting our accountabilities and responsibilities to water and to each other. \n\n\n\nwords and fonts are monuments to meaning\, they simplify and they standardize\, they consume and limit possibilities: written place names have been used to prop up systems of abuse. \n\n\n\nresisting the desire to pin down and reduce oral languages\, refusing these assumed wayfinders of previous maps\, instead we offer the disorientation of searching\, finding your way by other means\, feeling your way through sound and topography\, using your senses\, dissolving written words to focus on the water itself. \n\n\n\nThis is a preview of an ongoing project with future programming to culminate in June 2022. \n\n\n\nThe CollectiveElwood JimmyLeslie McCueSara RoqueAmy Sharrocks \n\n\n\nArtworkClara Peltier \n\n\n\nAnimationTone Davies \n\n\n\nSite DevelopersFrom Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre:Brendan BillingsleyAmos HayesRebekah IngramMatthew KingPeter PulsiferAdditional Sound ContributorsKo’khó:wa Horn-Kirby\, Matthew King\, ThohahènteProduction Assistant (UK)Alisa Oleva \n\n\n\nProducersMary Osborn\, Artsadmin UKAlison Wong\, Luminato \n\n\n\nUm of Water is commissioned and presented by Luminato in partnership with the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre (Carleton University)\, and Artsadmin UK \n\n\n\nAcknowledgementsDesign de Plume\, Drawing Change\, Alex Rand\, Murray Richardson \n\n\n\n\n\n \n Learn More\n \n This event is part of Luminato 2021\n Learn More\n \n\n\n\n\n\n\nProcess Gallery\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIf you like this\, you’ll also like…\n Zaagidiwin\n DanceFilmMusicSpoken WordStorytelling URL: LOCATION:ON CATEGORIES:Interactive Virtual Platform ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
