About the Essayists:
katnancy makes ‘art’, facilitates and writes out of Treaty 1/Winnipeg. Born and raised in Gimuy(Cairns, Australia), they studied Photographic, Video and Expanded Art Practice and Art History at the Queensland College of Art in Meanjin(Brisbane, Australia) and at the School of Art University of Manitoba. They have initiated and facilitated various local and transnational discussion groups, and participated in intergenerationally collaborative projects here and abroad. Including founding and co-facilitating The Sunroom Artspace, an all female, artist-run project space in the Exchange and working with the Nepal Picture Library in Kathmandu, Nepal as part of the Doing Visual Politics Symposium. Practices of play, rest and dreaming, are cultivated, shared and lead every stage of the process, in all aspects of their work. Honouring nuance, fluidity and intuition, the dance continues, and is fed by an ongoing commitment to curiosity and collaboration. They are currently the Manager of Creative Programming at Video Pool Media Arts Centre and serve on the Board of Directors for WNDX Festival of Moving Image.
Toby Gillies is a multidisciplinary artist, the third generation in his family of art-thing makers, enjoyers, and educators living in Winnipeg. Toby’s practice is rooted in a playful exploration of materials, and experiments in collaboration. Projects have taken the form of drawing, installation, filmmaking and animation, ceramic, sculpture, cardboard, parties, social practice.
For a decade, he has been facilitating art experiences in the West Broadway community, where he serves as Studio Programs Manager at Art City and is an Artist in Residence at Misericordia Health Centre. His favourite days are spent making art with older people in the morning, making art with younger people in the afternoon, and then working on creative projects of his own in the evening.
Kate Sjoberg is a settler living and working on Treaty 1. Her writing work includes academic research, journalistic work, opinion pieces, prose and poetry.
