Aboriginal Self-portrait workshops
Saturday until August 31
1 to 4 p.m.
The Museum archives are full of photographs that document the history of Aboriginal Peoples. Using digital photo-imaging, superimpose a photo of yourself onto one of these archival Images to create a bridge between the past and present, between Indigenous culture and your own. The idea for the studio was conceived by Caroline Monnet, a young multidisciplinary artist of Algonquin and French origin.
Until August 31, the IMAX Summer Film Festival will screen the most thrilling and captivating IMAX films ever produced. For film schedules, please visit our website at www.civilization.ca/imax or call 819-776-7010.
