The central hypothesis is that reconciliation is a process and also a work in progress. Thus the forum will both use and explore concepts of process and progress, as they relate to reconciliation, research, artistic and curatorial practice. The central organizing principle is the development of methods through which artists, curators, cultural producers, and researchers collaboratively use gallery and other exhibition spaces to engage in public and private dialogue to interrogate key themes and from the expansive international and growing Canadian bodies of literature discussing reconciliation theory and practice. These themes include: truth(s); history; apology and forgiveness; responsibility; activism; awareness and education; commemoration; redress; Indigenous and non-Indigenous experiences, paradigms and worldviews; and immigration, migration, and settler identities and experiences.
