“I would like to announce my departure from the London Arts Council as Curator, Indigenous Programming and Cultivating Allyship. I would like to thank the London Arts Council for their encouragement, shared passion for investing in arts and culture, and, for their ongoing work in supporting Indigenous artists and Indigenous art in the city of London and the surrounding First Nations communities. 

I’m excited to begin a new journey that centres my own art and storytelling, and I also look forward to continuing my work in the community as an educator and consultant.  Chi-Miigwech Kinaweya, Thank You Everyone, for your support!”
