Looking closely at the world towards the future, enawendewin/relationships considers gardens as sites of learning and creation. Bringing together contemporary artists who integrate Indigenous knowledge with practical concerns in the everyday, this multidisciplinary project is informed by themes including: growing food as sovereignty, methods for contemporary living, and how our local is affected by global concerns.
Adapted from the initial museum installation as a result of the pandemic lockdown, both outdoor and online sites will encompass collaborative explorations, exploring methods gathered from gardening projects while regarding the importance of relationality.
