Mi’kmaq By Design is a series of artist talks coinciding with the exhibition Souvenir. Invited Mi’kmaq artists will speak about their creative practice and discuss the extent to which L’nu visual culture and history informs and/or inspires their work.

Julia Rose Sutherland’s art practice employs photography, sculpture, textiles, performance and adapted traditional materials and techniques from her Metepenagiag Mi’kmaq Nation that often emphasize concepts of loss and absence
