About the event
Saulteaux artist Robert Houle and McMichael Chief Curator Sarah Milroy will engage in conversation about the artist’s personal experience in the residential school system, the politics of cultural suppression and the resilience of the Indigenous community in the face of adversity. They will be joined by Deborah Chansonneuve, who brings over two decades experience working with residential school survivors and their families. Feeling a deep affinity for Robert’s art forged over many years, Chansonneuve will help to frame his experience in the context of individual and collective resistance.
