Considering the many cultural and artistic events of his First Nations community, the Huron-Wendat of Wendake, that have taken place in recent years (2008-2017) as indicative of a fervent excitement throughout the reserves of Kébeq (and Kanata), Guy Sioui Durand will offer a new synthesis of the evolution of artistic activities (1967–2017) in Hochelaga/Montreal—which is celebrating its 375th anniversary while Canada celebrates its 150th. Relying on readings and special guests during the seminar* prior to the public talk, he will put forward two paths of development of Indigenous imagination and art.
