As part of the Ajuinnata week at McGill University, EVOQ architecture is pleased to invite you to the opening of the international exhibition, “Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit: Art, Architecture, and Traditional Knowledge,” in the presence of Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Christopher Manfredi and curator Isabelle Laurier. The vernissage will launch of the festivities of the Ajuinnata* week. The Ajuinnata series is the first of its kind at McGill University.
Ajuinnata is a series of events that aims to help discover the many facets of contemporary Inuit culture. The series will feature presentations by Inuit political leaders (Pita Aatami, Lisa Koperqualuk, Natan Obed), health and wellness experts (Richard Budgell, Minnie Grey), climate change activists (Sheila Watt-Cloutier), artists (Asinnajaq, Pasha Partridge, Nina Segalowitz), and more. Its goal is to introduce the McGill and Montreal communities to the challenges, aspirations, and achievements of the Inuit; sharing knowledge and better understanding are the root of engagement and dialogue.
* Ajuinnata : a commitment, a promise, a vow.
Opening: September 8th at 5 p.m.
