In Nuvisi: Threading our Beads at Qatiktalik, curator Krista Ulujuk Zawadski explores how people, stories, artworks, cultural belongings and histories are threaded to one another, at Qatiktalik.


Nuvisi is grounded in Krista's PhD work at Carleton, and in her research with Elders, artists and scholars, in museum collections, through workshops, on the internet and in the community.


CUAG and Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership: The Pilimmaksarniq / Pijariuqsarniq Project invite you to join Krista, Miqqusaaq Bernadette Dean and Augatnaaq Eccles for a lively discussion on Inuit research methodologies.


Through centering of their lived experiences, connections to their communities and intergenerational knowledges, the panelists will discuss their navigations of and entanglements with academia and Euro-Western knowledge practices. They will share stories, memories and experiences with research and knowledge production practices from the archives to the seams.

We'll convene on Zoom. Everyone is welcome to this free event! Live captioning will be available.

Murder, They Sang! Dark ballads and tales told in the winter parlour…

Saturday December 11th | 7pm Eastern Time (find your Time Zone here)

Tickets are by donation; any amount is appreciated!


In this celebration of the traditional to the contemporary, with a nod to popular culture, we will be honouring murder ballads that have been "packaged in the cozy trappings of the holiday" for centuries. These ballads, illuminating shocking events, have travelled, evolved, and, in some instances, been created in more contemporary eras to memorialize both the miscreants and their victims.
