McCord Museum chosen by Conseil des arts de Montréal for its engagement with Indigenous communities

Museum Announcements

The McCord Museum is one of eight Montreal cultural institutions selected by the Conseil des arts de Montréal to share its expertise, resources and networks with the arts community. Under the agreement, the Museum will carry out two projects focussed on creating stronger ties with Indigenous creators and increasing awareness of Indigenous realities and issues.

In fall 2019, the McCord Museum developed the educational workshop Teach Me a Legend: Learn, Create and Share a Living Story with Wapikoni Mobile and contemporary Innu storyteller and director Donovan Vollant, a co-creation experience that will be shared with the arts community in the coming months.

‘‘The McCord Museum has been committed to the reconciliation process with Indigenous Peoples for a number of years. This new partnership with the Conseil des arts de Montréal is an opportunity for us to strengthen our ties with Indigenous creators while sharing our experiences with our peers in the Montreal arts community’’, notes Suzanne Sauvage, President and Chief Executive Officer of the McCord Museum.

Learn more about the project with Donavan Vollant.
