OPENING OF LABORATOIRE #1
Sedalia Kawennotas Fazio
Meeting February 27, 2019 at 6 pm
The Equity Seeking Committee would like to invite you to the opening event of LABORATOIRE #1 in the presence of Elder Sedalia Kawennotas Fazio.
Sedalia Kawennotas Fazio’s cultural roots lie across the bridge in Kahnawake. Moving to Montreal 18 years ago, she quickly realized the physical tie that encourages aboriginal youth to connect to their heritage was missing. This lack of a connection led Sedalia to begin a ten-year long project that centred on the creation of a sweat lodge on Montreal island. Sedalia’s passion and dedication led to the establishment of a permanent home for her community project within the Botanical Gardens of Montreal. Sedalia Fazio has been invited to speak in many different contexts from the opening of the Viens Commissions, to manifestations (Idle No More), and seminars (notably on degrowth).

Laboratoire is a new space for reflection and action through art concerning matters animating La Centrale and the Montreal art community. The inaugural edition is an invitation to take our first steps collectively towards a decolonial feminism.
