    Organized by:
  • At the centre of CanadaHub’s programme is DECLARATION: Rematriation, a live art exploration of Indigenous Canadian identity exploring a topic set by weekly open conversations in King’s Hall. ARTICLE 11 is an Indigenous performance company led by Tara Beagan and Andy Moro. They invite reputed artists of othered communities to collaborate in artful protest and celebrate the right to do so. Article 11 has played in the Dominion of Canada under freeways, in museums and in major municipal headquarters. With Rematriation they declare personal and political sovereignty through dance, image, word and song on the Great White Mother’s home soil. Rematriation is also an active, evolving, installation work.

    Occupying a permanent space in King’s Hall, visitors to the space will be able to see performance, engage in discussion and watch the project grow as a response to the space and the artists involvement in the world’s largest arts festival happening right outside their door.

    Artists from across the festival who will be collaborating with ARTICLE 11 include Hot Brown Honey and Santee Smith.
