The Loop @ SAW Video, 2 Daly Ave., Ottawa
Join media artist and activist Kit for a talk about their experiences during the opposition to the Coastal GasLink LNG pipeline by the Wet’suwet’en First Nation in British Columbia. Kit was part of a media team present at the Unist'ot'en camp during the escalating conflict with the RCMP. Video in Contested Places will focus on the emotional and physical demands of video journalism as well as the sociopolitical considerations that are necessary when inserting oneself into an Indigenous contested space as a settler. Work produced from their time at the camp will be shared and a discussion will follow.
