Ontario Supports ROM, OCAD U in New Multimedia Indigenous History Project

2017-07-31
Ontario is supporting an innovative collaboration between OCAD University and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) to showcase Indigenous culture and history before and beyond Ontario’s 150th anniversary.

This fall, a group of students from OCAD U’s Indigenous Visual Culture Program will explore relevant cultural objects at the ROM and use multimedia to share them with a larger audience. The project will include the creation of an interactive online learning environment that will incorporate gaming, commentary and the exchange of local stories through social media.

Supporting Indigenous arts and culture is one of many steps on Ontario’s journey of healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. It reflects the government’s commitment to work with Indigenous partners, creating a better future for everyone in the province.
