waabandiwag (they see each other) calls upon tenderness, joy, radical love, pleasure and ancestral knowledge. This exhibition aims to speak to the courage that is essential for the deliberate act of care, and our dedication to self as well as external communities. Focusing on our collective consciousness, intersections and shared lived experiences, waabandiwag seeks to create a partnership of intergenerational healing as well as collecting and reflecting on our projections of the future, as informed by where we find joy and love. waabandiwag celebrates our resiliency, confirms our creativity and place QTBIPOC women and femmes as leaders, who have always been at the forefront of our collective cultural histories.
