Neighbours Exhibition (Cambridge Art Galleries | Idea Exchange)

“Heather Majaury (Algonquin Anishinabekwe) moved to the Haldimand Tract in 2002. The descendant of historically unregistered Indigenous people and pioneer settlers she grew up in Algonquin traditional territory where most of her close and extended family still remain. She is a performing artist who privileges the community-based storytelling of lived experience as expert knowledge in her ongoing praxis. She believes that story-sharing (dibajmowinan) is a powerful tool that can be used in the service of ongoing reconciliation to help inform social policy and actions. Crucial to the work of developing resilient communities is the cultivation of common social memory while also respecting and learning from individual variance, difference and diversity within larger and more general narratives. She feels the spaces and tensions evoked between patterns and anomalies, chatter and silences as holding dynamic generative and transformative potential toward positive social change.

In Neighbours, Heather enlists the community in responding to the Truth & Reconciliation Commission Call To Action 93 through quilt making, story sharing another arts-based methods.
