Bonnie Devine | Circles and Lines:
Michi Saagiig Opening + Artist Talk

at the Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM)

Bonnie Devine 2014 AGO CHESS 2017 Keynote Address: Bonnie Devine,
Professor Bonnie Devine - Photo source:
Network in Canadian History & Environment (NICHE)

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 6:00 - 9:00 pm

FREE

Guest-curated by Raven Davis. Presented by the Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM).

"This project uses various media and mapping strategies to explore the complex colonial histories of the north shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, which include the cities of Mississauga and Toronto and the traditional territories of the Michi Saagiig (Mississauga) and the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations of the Grand River).

A member of Serpent River First Nation, Genaabaajing, an Anishinaabe Ojibwa territory on the north shore of Lake Huron, Bonnie Devine's work emerges from the storytelling and image-making traditions she witnessed as a child. Her art explores issues of land and environment, treaty and history. She is an artist, curator, writer, and educator.

Though formally educated at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD U) and York University, Bonnie's most enduring learning came from her grandparents, who were trappers on the Canadian Shield. Bonnie's installation, video, and curatorial projects have been shown in solo and group exhibitions and film festivals across Canada and in the USA, South America, Russia, Europe, and China, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Berlin Film Festival, the National Museum of the American Indian, and Today Art Museum in Beijing." ~ Info from Art Gallery of Mississauga (AGM).

All are welcome. Refreshments provided. The AGM is a barrier-free space with an all-gender washroom.

"OUR MISSION: Eden Food for Change is committed to increasing access to good food in a dignified manner, developing food skills to encourage healthy eating and empowering the community through education, outreach and advocacy.

Eden Food for Change primarily serves western Mississauga. We serve people who live in the postal code areas starting with L5L, L5M and L5N.

In 2016, we served 2,802 people each of whom received an average of 34 lbs of food per visit, 51% of which was fresh food.

OUR STORY: In 1989, a few members of Eden United Church noticed there were hungry families in their church and in the community. It was in the fall of this same year that an informal food bank began. A place where people would donate food and hungry families could access food. In the spring of 1990, this became an official program at the church.

As time went on, this volunteer-run program continued to grow and in 2002, Eden Food Bank was incorporated and became an officially registered charity. While it continued to run out of Eden United Church, Eden Food Bank was now its own organization." ~ Info from Eden Food for Change.

Pose for pictures with the historically-themed surroundings, sample herbs from the garden, work the handle on a water pump, and talk to our volunteers to learn about days gone by. You'll feel like you've gone back in time to a peaceful, little village. ~ Info from Culture Days.

Event organizer: Terry Wilson
"I am a retired History teacher who has spent the past twenty years building a little historical village on my property. Located in Ontario's First Heritage District, Meadowvale Village, my village is a recreation of early times in the village's history. My village was named 'All-time Favorite Doors Open Site in Ontario' in 2011. I continue working to enhance the experience of my visitors, and recently hosted classes from local schools. I'd like you to see it too!"
