Organized by

Thinking Rock Community Arts

Based in Thessalon, Algoma District, Northern Ontario, Thinking Rock creates art with and for the people living along the North Shore of Lake Huron, from Genaabaajing (Serpent River First Nation) to Baawating (Sault Ste. Marie) and all points in between. Through our free, multidisciplinary artistic programming we invite people of all Nations, ages, abilities, backgrounds and identities to join us in playing, making and dreaming about this special place we call home – as it was, as it is, and as it might be. Our artistic team represents professional established and emerging rural artists of Indigenous, Settler and Newcomer descent who share a burning desire to explore how we can together begin to create spaces for dialogue and mutual understanding through multidisciplinary, multi-generational, cross-cultural community-engaged art projects.
