The ACC-CCA would like to proudly announce the hiring of Camille Larivée as our new Project Coordinator for the TIOHTIA:KE PROJECT. Camille will be working in Montreal to ensure that all aspects of project are moving forward.
Camille Larivée is an art community organizer who completed a Bachelor in Art History and a certificate in Gender Studies at the Université du Québec à Montréal in 2016. Camille has a vested interest and experience in Indigenous art organizing, practices, and politics in Tiohtiá’ke. She collaborated with the Montreal Urban Aboriginal Community Strategy NETWORK and the Cabot Square Project, and she was previously worked as the Media Arts Project Coordinator at the Independent Media Arts Alliance (IMAA) and with the National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition (NIMAC). Based on her own identity, Camille is interested in the duality between the presence and invisibility of mixed Indigenous and Queer artists in the urban space. Her specific experience led her to found Unceded Voices: Street Artists Convergence in 2014, a biennial convergence of primarily Indigenous-identified women, 2Spirit, Queer and Women of Color street artists and muralists from all over Turtle Island.
