Brief Description

The Nogojiwanong Project Committee invites Indigenous artists or artist teams residing in Ontario to submit their credentials, examples of prior experience and a conceptual approach for a site-specific public artwork to be installed at Nogojiwanong on the territories of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabe Peoples. Nogojiwanong is an Anishinaabe word meaning “place at the foot of the rapids” and the name given to the gathering place, at the bottom of a turbulent stretch of the Otonabee River, renamed Peterborough by European settlers. The artwork will be installed at a site, as yet to be determined, overlooking the Otonabee River within Millennium Park—the present-day landfall and eddy along that western shoreline in the City of Peterborough.
