Nipivut, meaning “our voice” in Inuktituk, is an urban Inuit community radio show concerned with connecting north and south through the medium of voice.

Curious about what sounds might have accompanied the creation of Ashoona’s work, as well as what the works themselves might sound like, Nipviut has prepared a special episode based on Mapping Worlds to be broadcast the night of the event.

Listening together in the gallery space, the audience will be guided through Ashoona’s worlds — be they physical, social, imaginary or discursive.

A conversation between episode producer Naluturuk Weetaluktuk and guest contributors will follow.

Admission is free.
