Jumblies Theatre Talking Treaties audio gallery

Co-presented by the DMG, Department of Sociology and ARTSIDEOUT

The Talking Treaties audio gallery is a series of listening stations featuring interviews with artists and academics in response to treaty-related questions, reworked into thematic audio works by artists LAL (Rosina Kazi and Nic Murray), Adrienne Marcus Raja, Alaska B and Ange Loft. The works, which each run about five minutes, explore issues around Toronto land and Indigenous history, acknowledgment, urban treaty and underhanded treaty processes. Accompanying the gallery is a self-directed response activity, inviting listeners to create found poems from interview transcripts. All are welcome to participate, drop in at any point during the day!

The audio gallery is a component of the larger Talking Treaties project, developed by Jumblies Theatre. This durational, participatory multi-arts project artfully shares local Indigenous knowledge and awareness. Talking Treaties furthers Jumblies’ community-engaged initiative to learn and express Toronto’s still little-known Indigenous history.
