December Art Crawl Screening [Factory Media Centre]

December Art Crawl Screening

Friday, December 08, 2017 from 6 – 10pm

Free Admission

WE CAN'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE
Dir: Alanis Obomsawin
Screening at 6:00pm (2 hrs 40 mins)

In 2007, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations filed a complaint against Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada, accusing it of discrimination. They argued that the family and child support services made available to First Nations children on reserves and in Yukon were underfunded and inferior to those offered to other Canadian children. Indigenous children were also six to eight times more likely to be placed in foster care—more often than not in non-Native homes. This situation was reminiscent of the assimilation and trauma caused by residential schools, which was also widely discussed during the trial.

Including the many appeals, the legal process spanned nine long years before finally ending in victory for the plaintiffs in 2016. We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice gives a voice to those involved in this legal battle, notably Cindy Blackstock, Executive Director of the FNCFCSC, who endured government spying and retaliation as a result of her central role in the trial. Abenaki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin guides us through the intricacies of the legal system while never losing sight of the real issues at stake: the welfare of children and the survival of Indigenous cultures.

BIRTH OF A FAMILY
Dir: Tasha Hubbard
Screening at 8:40pm (1 hr 20 mins)

Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, meet together for the first time in this deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard.

Removed from their young Dene mother’s care as part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. Now all in middle age, each has grown up in different circumstances, with different family cultures, different values and no shared memories. Birth of a Family follows them through the challenges, trepidations and joys of their first steps towards forming their family.

Meeting all together for the first time, they spend a week in Banff, Alberta, sharing what they know about their mother and stories about their lives and the struggles they went through as foster kids and adoptees. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.

I Am An Artist Awareness Campaign Launch

I AM AN ARTIST

Artistry is a vision within the creative soul. It is a literary, visual, digital, and an audible spark that propels one to create and be creative. Artists share this creativity through many mediums and enhance the lives of others with this energy. “I am an Artist” is a representation of creators and their craft – a window into the many disciplines that produce “art” and “artists”. Through digital technology, we can begin to unravel the purpose, the energy, and the soul of each artist within various sectors of art and design. Although a single compilation, the singular beauty of each artist is displayed through their passion.

Join the Hamilton Arts Council as we invite all of the Hamilton community to attend a celebration to launch our new #IAMANARTIST media campaign!

The Hamilton Arts Council has installed 30 banners along the King William Street Art Walk in order to celebrate the diversity of Hamilton's Artistic Community and to showcase the many disciplines which fall under the moniker "Artist".  The project has been sponsored with the generous support of the Ontario Arts Council, Incite Foundation for the Arts, Orbital, Impressive Printing, the Hamilton Community Foundation, and the City of Hamilton. Hamilton Arts Council staff will be on-hand to share news of the other projects we are workingnon.

The "I Am An Artist" awareness campaign includes a micro-site at www.iamanartisthamilton.com which will also launch December 8, 2017. As well, Hamilton-area artists can use the hashtag #IAMANARTIST to promote their work and practice. We hope you will join us in this vibrant social media awareness campaign to showcase the creative diversity of our community.

In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.
