Joshua will produce screen-printed poster series and accompanying zine outlining the historical relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples in Canada and to raise awareness of the troubling current state of affairs today. The posters and zine will present grassroots initiatives that are already in place in some communities today that promote peaceful healing between the two groups and present ways we can work towards decolonizing within our own community to move forward and reconcile together.
