“Hope and Healing” is a temporary installation exhibit by Métis Encaustic Sculptor, Tracey-Mae Chambers. The installation reflects the unrest of the current global and national climate.

From the COVID-19 pandemic, battling racial discrimination, to the forgotten Indigenous children in the discovery of numerous mass graves across Canada. Tracey-Mae Chambers asks the tough question of where we go from here, individually, and collectively, and how do we stay hopeful?

Chambers creates site-specific art installations in outdoor spaces across Canada, constructed with red string reused at each location. These installations are detailed and temporary. They are created, photographed and then removed on the same day. Each installation promotes discussion with the people who see it being built.

On Friday, September 3, 2021, visitors to the Village will be able to watch Chambers bring this installation to life. We hope it will encourage dialogue and reflection and encourage visitors to photograph and share your images and experience online with the hashtag #hopeandhealing.

This experience is included with admission to the Village on September 3, 2021.
