You’re welcome to come with an artist in mind, or browse OCAD’s library books and databases to newly discover a creative female to introduce to the Wiki-world.
You’ll be sure to leave with a new appreciation for nature after an evening of aboriginal storytelling led by Maya-Waasige (Elder John Keeshig) focusing on our relationship to “G’gashinan” (Our Mother Earth).

Do you still hang onto a treasured toy? Are you particularly attached to your tattered sofa? Do you frequent flea markets to add to your troll collection?

Feel free to bring that Donatello Ninja Turtle action figure.
