Art Rave was approached by the Heritage Canada Day Committee asking Art Rave to participate. We have a pre-Covid grant in hand for that purpose rolled over from 2020.
A s the site is City property and unceded territory, the decision was made to contact the City requesting their confirmation that a conversation had taken place with the Hupachsath & Tseshaaht Nations.
Art Rave keeps Reconciliation in mind, so with flags still flying at half mast & ongoing forensic investigations at the residential school, a consultation about Canada Day ‘celebration’ is necessary prior to our participation.
*As of May 2nd, Art Rave has not received a confirmation of any consultation re: Canada Day celebration from the City.
