Based in Thessalon, Algoma District, Northern Ontario, Thinking Rock creates art with and for the people living along the North Shore of Lake Huron, from Genaabaajing (Serpent River First Nation) to Baawating (Sault Ste. Marie) and all points in between. Through our free, multidisciplinary artistic programming, we invite people of all Nations, ages, abilities and backgrounds to join us in playing, making and dreaming about this special place we call home – as it was, as it is, and as it might be.
Our artistic team represents professional established and emerging rural artists of First Nations, Métis and Settler descent who share a burning desire to explore how we can together begin to create spaces for dialogue and mutual understanding through multidisciplinary, multi-generational, cross-cultural community-engaged art projects.
We believe that if Central Algomans of Indigenous, Settler and Newcomer descent co-create community arts projects and presentations, then we will build relationships across cultures and communities and opportunities to live, work and play in the arts will increase across the region. Ultimately this will lead to more inclusive, vibrant and resilient communities across Algoma.
