Shé:kon Gallery is proud to present the work of four emerging Indigenous filmmakers. We believe that the stories of Indigenous people are important, and that it’s our responsibility to make sure these stories are heard and seen by as many people as possible. We hope you enjoy this collection of short films from some of our most talented young directors! Produced by Wapikoni, these videos are presented in conjunction with 41st edition of the International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA). Wakiponi ambassadors and artists will be present for the opening.

Wapikoni is a non-profit organization founded in 2004. Wapikoni is involved in mediation, intervention, training and audiovisual creation for Indigenous youth.

Galerie She:kon, which means “hello” in Kanien’kéhà, focuses on showcasing solo exhibitions by up-and-coming Indigenous artists. This initiative aims to uncover fresh talent and provide an opportunity for those interested in curating their first exhibition.
