The Grand Theft Terra Firma exhibit at the Diefenbaker Canada Centre uses the language of video gaming to reframe the settlement of Canada as a complex heist, and invites visitors to evaluate their own complicated relationship with colonial practices.

Hear from exhibit artists, David Campion and Sandra Schields, and the Stó:lō cultural advisor and Elders as they discuss activist art and Indigenous collaboration.

Dr. Keith Carlson (PhD), from the College of Arts and Science's Department of History, will moderate the discussion.
