Each fall we are pleased to make space for our dear friends, Andrew and Chloe of Synonym Art Consultation, to come out to work retreat in one of our Falcon Lake cabins.
Synonym Art Consultation is a curatorial collective based in Winnipeg, Manitoba on the original lands of Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation and Treaty 1 Territory. Synonym is committed to providing meaningful employment and mentorship opportunities to artists and to facilitate the celebration of art and culture with unique, inclusive, community-minded events that serve as safer spaces for diverse populations.
These two have cultivated a grassroots contemporary street-art movement in our city and participate in hyperlocal and international dialogues around important issues, such as Indigenous rights, social responsibility, and innovative economic development, rooted in the arts with their month long Wall-to-Wall Mural and Culture Festival.
These are some photos from their visit last year, captured by the talented BNB Studios.
