Locating John A. Macdonald
Join us at 6:30 PM CST on Thursday, 7 January for a livestream conversation with artist, activist and teacher Syrus Marcus Ware, architect Dana Salama, and artist Christina Battle!
We will be exploring the problematic history and policies of Canada’s first Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald, whose role in the institutionalized violence and racism in this country has sparked debate in recent years from coast to coast, as we question the tributes still standing to honour his legacy in our own communities. This livestream will involve a participatory Google form where audience members are invited to explore the monuments and landmarks that they observe in their communities and are invited to imagine what alternative monuments might look like.
Follow along on the MacKenzie’s Facebook or YouTube accounts! No pre-registration necessary.
