On the occasion of Canada’s sesquicentennial, and in dialogue with Black Arm Band’s dirtsong, this panel considers the stories we are telling about our country on and off the stage. From Indigenous sovereignty to pipelines and the environment: how does the past inform the memory-work we are performing in the present?
