Lavender Menace Exhibition - Audio Tour Online Launch
In partnership with Culture Days, Lavender Menace is excited to launch a self-guided audio tour in correlation with the exhibition at The Forks Plaza skatepark. In line with the first full moon of the month, the audio file link will be made public over Graffiti Art Programming’s Instagram (@graffitiartprog) on October 1st. The audio-tour will connect viewers with the show, yet encouraging them to visit in their individual time, to discover the intergenerational knowledge sharing and bonding that took place over the course of the project. Each artist will share personal insights into the exhibition and their experiences connecting to one another and to the space they occupy as as young women and queer individuals within Treaty 1 territory. Guests will be guided throughout the exhibition space of the skatepark, but the tour will also take listeners throughout The Forks grounds, including the Prairie Garden, to include knowledge sharing of native plants and medicines within the surrounding area. Guests will learn the roles these medicines played in traditionally nurturing and healing us, as well as will learn about the gifts that Two-Spirit and Indigi-queer individuals embody. The medicine knowledge will be shared by Metis land defender and organizer, Jenna Vandal, alongside a Two-Spirit Elder. Follow @graffitiartprog on Instagram in preparation for the audio file link and map of the The Forks skatepark grounds to be shared publicly!
