Canada C3 Expedition
To settle is to stay in one place. My family is a mixture of European settlers. I joined
Canada C3 on the final leg of the journey. I saw each point along the route as being both connected and separated by borders, seen and unseen. I have tried to walk gently through these. Listening was a strong theme. This journey goes beyond the discomfort of Canada defined as a one nation at 150 years, toward a concept of Canada 150+. It is about looking at the same historical mistakes made over and over again. It is about the hope for a future involving many Nations working on the difficult issue of reconciliation and with work yet to do.
I would like to thank Student's On Ice for inviting me on this expedition and also The Canada Council of the Arts for their generous support exhibiting this work.
