A project asks 6 artists 'what does the future of Canada look like?'
Six award-winning Indigenous artists and filmmakers are being asked to imagine what Canada might look like in 150 years.
Created by TIFF, imagineNATIVE, Pinnguaq and the Initiative for Indigenous Futures, the 2167 project will use virtual reality to allow Canadians to immerse themselves in a future they might never have imagined.
"For some of the people who maybe their voices have been silenced in the past, we're allowing them to imagine Canada in the future — 150 years in the future, through an Indigenous lens," said Nyla Innuksuk, co-founder and producer with Pinnguaq.
Three of the immersive art installations will premiere at Toronto's TIFF Bell Lightbox in June 2017, while the remaining three will be presented in October 2017, during the imagineNATIVE film and media festival.
