Bourgie Hall presents

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Contemporary Music

To mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation as well as the Journées de la culture, Innu poet Maya Cousineau Mollen drew inspiration from a work in the Museum’s permanent collection to craft a literary text then set to music by Anishinaabe composer Barbara Assiginaak. This cocommission from Bourgie Hall and the FIL will be performed in the Museum by Innu soprano Elisabeth St-Gelais at various moments throughout the day.

In collaboration with the Festival international de la littérature (FIL) and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
