On January 18th, Artlatch will transform Massey Theatre into a gathering/witnessing space for the work of reawakening + sharing artistic and culture gifts. Artlatch marks the official launch Skookum Indigenous Arts Series, a new artistic partnership between Savage Society and Massey Theatre Society.
The ‘potlatch’ is often remembered for its grand giveaways and redistribution of wealth by a chief or respected leader in the community. Canoes would travel from many distances around to witness the work the host of the ‘sɫənəq’ (pronounced sl-t-en-ek)or gathering had in mind. In the same essence, we look to use art as a gift and reason to gather and take space in our own ‘Artlatch’. A space to gather, to share, to bundle and to give with arts, performance, music, history, stories, dance, drumming and all other creative gifts
