WISH150 Northwest Territories Mosaic

October 6, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Wish150

What is your wish for Canada for the next 150 years?

Come and add your voice to a growing conversation. Join us for a night of thoughtful dialogue, music and dance. Celebrate the talents and dreams of youth in the community here in the auditorium which is situated on the traditional territory of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation.

TakingITGlobal asked students from across Canada to share their hopes and dreams for the future of the country.  The Wish150 exhibit featuring the NWT Bison Mosaic is the result of these emerging artists’ talents and wishes.

In the Northwest Territories, students from Deh Gáh School in Fort Providence and K’àlemì Dene School located in Ndılǫ, were encouraged to create a mosaic to express their identity, represent their community and share their wishes for Canada in the next 150 years.

The NWT Mural project is linked to Explore150, an official Signature project supported by Canadian Heritage.

Show runs until February 2018.
