APPI Edmonton Event - ᐄᓃᐤ (ÎNÎW) River Lot 11 ∞  (Edmonton's Indigenous Art Park): Stories of this Place

Wednesday, June 19, 2019
Tour begins at 5:30 PM
Meeting Location: Parking lot south of ᐄᓃᐤ (ÎNÎW) River Lot 11
ᐄᓃᐤ (ÎNÎW) River Lot 11 ∞, Edmonton’s first dedicated Indigenous Art Park,  was created to not only exhibit artworks and celebrate Indigenous artists and cultures, but to serve as a place for gathering, education, and arts programming. Developed in partnership with the City of Edmonton, the Edmonton Arts Council, and Indigenous artists, community members and Elders, this  multi-year cooperative process built trust, opened opportunities and explored ways of thinking about place as it relates to Indigenous cultures.
Attendees will learn about the process undertaken to create the art park,  how it integrated and strengthened the complex relationships between and with our Indigenous partners, and will illustrate lessons learned  that could be applied to related endeavours. There will be an opportunity to discuss whether and/or how the art park fosters local meaning and connection.
Michelle Hartlaub, MCIP, RPP - Principal Planner, City of Edmonton. Michelle’s experience includes policy development and master planning. She is driven to bring relevance and a sense of connection through the public realm.
David Turnbull - Director of Public Art and Conservation, Edmonton Arts Council. David has a Master of Art Conservation from Queens University and oversees Edmonton’s Public Art Collection planning, programming, acquisition and long term care. He is interested in policy development and integrating art into daily life.
