Toronto Arts Council Indigenous Arts Projects
Tash Naveau is Dene (Chipweyan) and eastern European, she belongs to the Deer Clan and was raised in and is a member of the Ojibwe community of Mattagami First Nation. Currently based in Toronto Canada, her early work experience was in youth work and advocacy in settler and Indigenous communities, while keeping art and image making close by. Moving to Toronto in 2010 opened up a world of media making, shifting her art focus from Photography to Video and media-making work, leading her to experiences in coordinating and leading workshops, assisting and coproducing for short-form independent projects, and editing videos for non-profit organizations and collaborative projects within the Toronto and surrounding Indigenous community.
Tash continues to explore interactive projects involving natural materials, projections, video and sound. She was the Indigenous Place-keeping Fellow at Evergreen Brickworks and Future Cities (2020) and had recent installations and video work presented at film festivals internationally as well as locally at ImagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival, the Toronto Reference Library, Allan Gardens park, and the Ontario Science Centre.
Currently, she shares her time as a creator for documentary content, as the manager of the Indigenous Arts Program the Toronto Arts Council, and is the Interim Student Life Coordinator with First Nations House at the University of Toronto.
