RISE: a performance by Jaime Black

Please join us for a performance by artist Jaime Black on Tuesday, August 13 at 8:15pm in Air Canada Park, 345 Portage Avenue. 

This work calls forward the energy of the resistance and resilience in the face of ongoing colonial oppression honouring all those who have shown the courage to rise.

Jaime Black is a multidisciplinary artist of mixed Anishinaabe and Finish decent. Black’s art practice engages in themes of memory, identity, place and resistance and is grounded in an understanding of the body and the land as sources of cultural and spiritual knowledge.
