OSC Gallery 2008-2009 Exhibition Programming Call for Submissions 2008

Deadline: July 20th, 2008

About The Open Sky Creative Society (OSCS) / OSC Gallery is based in Ft. Simpson / Liidlii kue, NWT & primarily serves the artistic community & audiences of the Dehcho, a multicultural region in the NWT composed of a dozen or so villages & aboriginal settlements. The OSCS was formed in 1999 by local artists & arts supporters who saw a need for an arts & cultural service organization as well as presentation & artist outreach opportunities in the Dehcho. The society’s presence in our region is vital as extreme distances to the nearest urban centres, result in few opportunities for audiences & artist alike. The OSCS fulfills a unique role in the community & the Dehcho as the only active non-profit, non-governmental, artist, & cultural supporter run organization. The volunteer-based society provides artists & audiences with an informed professional forum for research, production, presentation, promotion & dissemination of new works in contemporary visual arts & traditional Dene crafts as well as networking & educational opportunities, & a general resource centre.

Annie Mae Movement Opens at Greystone Theatre Saturday, May 10, 2008

May 06, 2008

Annie Mae’s Movement

Dates: Saturday, May 10, 2008 – Saturday, May 17, 2008

Location: Greystone Theatre, John Mitchell Building, UofS

Details: This important and powerful play explores what it must have been like to be Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, a woman in a man’s movement, a Canadian in America, an Aboriginal in a white-dominant culture at a time when it felt like Aboriginal peoples could really change the world. Dying under mysterious circumstances, it is still not clear whether she was killed by the FBI or by members of the American Indian Movement (AIM). What really happened to Anna Mae back in the late 70’s cannot be truly known. Facts are lost in disinformation and denial, in misinformation and memory. Instead of recounting cold facts, this play looks for the truth by examining the life and death of this remarkable Aboriginal woman.
