CLOSING RECEPTION OCTOBER 26, 7 - 9 PM

In tech-heavy contemporary Canada, traditional knowledge and lore may seem outdated and a relic of older days. However, looking at both social movements and lifestyle trends, it is apparent that new generations are showing an interest in the traditions of their lands and their ancestors.

The recent resurgence in marginalized peoples reclaiming traditional knowledge and a rise in witchcraft practitioners attest to a desire to use folk practices and natural cycles to define our place and identity. New practitioners of old tradition engage with it in a socially conscious mode, seeking connections to their ancestors, heritage and meaningful connections to the lands we live on and the places inhabited by our ancestors.
