Join in Wisdom of the North exhibition at Nuit Blanche


Showcasing the strength and spirit of First Nation communities in Northern Ontario, Wisdom of the North unveils during Scotiabank’s Nuit Blanche, which runs from sunset Saturday, Oct. 4, to sunrise Sunday in Toronto.

The Canadian Red Cross is presenting #RedCrossNuit Wisdom of the North, a collection of images by Canadian photographer and Red Cross volunteer Johan Hallberg-Campbell, curated by Patrick Macaulay. If you're in Toronto, join us at King and John streets. Or, follow along as we post images and responses from visitors using #RedCrossNuit and #snbTO on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Curator Patrick Macaulay shares the significance behind Wisdom of the North and how he chose each photo to tell a very powerful story:



The outdoor photo exhibition features engaging portraits, vast landscapes, and touching personal moments that reflect First Nation communities in Northern Ontario, specifically Moose Cree and Attawapiskat, presented on 8'x8' displays.
 
The Canadian Red Cross not only provides relief to First Nation communities in times of disaster, but also works to build capacity and resilience through its Strength and Spirit campaign, which aims to raise $1.5 million to support First Nation communities in preventing injuries, decreasing incidents of violence and abuse, and responding to emergency situations.
