Nogojiwanong Project

Otonabee River RapidsThe Nogojiwanong Project Committee invites Indigenous artists and artist teams residing in Ontario to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a conceptual approach for a site-specific public artwork to be installed at Nogojiwanong—the Place at the Foot of the Rapids on the territories of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabe Peoples.

Oversight of this project is being provided by a steering committee comprised of representatives from Alderville First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation, the Nogojiwanong Friendship Centre, the Niijkiwendidaa Anishnabekwag Services Circle and City staff.

The Nogojiwanong Project will support innovative proposals from both emerging and established artists working in a range of disciplines and media. Contemporary and traditional disciplines will be considered. Artworks should, in some manner, consider the setting and stories from this land, and bring attention to the evolution of local treaties and inherent treaty rights, in particular Treaty No. 20—the agreement between the Michi Saagiig peoples and the British Crown that made it possible for Europeans to settle in this region.
