DECLARATION

ARTICLE 11

DECLARATION is an Indigenous creation lab, engaging place and people in performative offerings.

ARTICLE 11 invites admired artists to collaborate and create a guided art jam, celebrating our vest range of talents coming together through vigorous art practive and profound love of land.  An offereing in three parts: frank artist talks in DECLARE; open creation lab with work during the day; and a fresh and raw performance in the evening.

We invite you to visit, return and soak in this Indigenous art party on land long cared for by Blackfoot, Stoney/Nakoda and Tsuu/Tina nations.

ARTICLE 11 is an Indigenous arts activist creation and production company founded in 2013 by Tara Beagan (Ntlaka'pamux) and Andy Moro (Omuskego Cree).  It is named for the eleventh article in the United Nations Declaration on the Righst of Indigenous Peoples (13/09/2007):  "Indigenous peoples have the right to practise and revitalize their cultural traditions and customs.  This includes the right to maintain, protect and develop the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures, such as archaeological and historical sites, artifacts, designs, ceremonies, technologies and visual and performaings arts and literature."
