Kaffeeklatsch: Moneca Sinclaire and Ildiko Nova
Join Moneca Sinclaire, Nehinan (Cree) and guest Ildiko Nova, (Romani Hungarian) for a talk over coffee for the inaugural Kaffeeklatsch series. Sinclaire and Nova are both self-taught Winnipeg based recycled artists whose art practices explore the intersections of identity, material application, community and storytelling. For both artists their shared histories treatment, displacement and genocide as Indigenous and Romani are critical to their work. Similarly, their art practices are sites of self-healing, reclamation and continuation of culture and stories to never be forgotten. As recycled artists their reasoning for re-using vary; Sinclaire considers herself a recycle or environmental or sustainable artist whereas Nova will use recycled materials to reclaim their purpose. Both work with and in community as art teachers, facilitators and activists.
This event will be facilitated on Zoom, with ASL interpretation and recorded and uploaded to YouTube. Live captioning will be available.
