About the Program

Juliane Foronda is a Filipina-Canadian artist, writer, and researcher. During her residency, she will research the board game archive at the Canadian Museum of History. From there, she will create a text-based installation scattering extracted board game phrases throughout the city of Ottawa. Through this, the city becomes similar to a game itself, with the public as participants. An interactive event will take place during the Festival.

Predominantly through object, intervention and text, Juliane Foronda’s practice is invested in notions of radical care, feminist hospitality, and traditions of gathering. Juliane received her MA in Fine Arts from Listaháskóli Íslands/Iceland University of the Arts, and her BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph. Juliane is based between Toronto and Glasgow.

The Canadian Museum of History (CMH) welcomes over 1.2 million visitors each year to its celebrated complex in the heart of the National Capital Region, making it the country’s most-visited museum. With roots stretching back to 1856, it is one of Canada’s oldest public institutions and a respected centre of museological excellence, sharing its expertise in history, archaeology, ethnology and cultural studies both within Canada and abroad. In addition to its ongoing exhibitions, including the spectacular Grand Hall and First Peoples Hall, each year the Museum presents a number of outstanding exhibitions focusing on Canadian and world history and civilizations. These exhibitions include those developed by the Museum as well as many produced by other Canadian or international institutions. The Museum is also home to the Canadian Children’s Museum, a 500-seat theatre and the CINÉ+, equipped with a giant 3D screen and a giant dome. The CMH presents a rich variety of online content. Research activities are concentrated in the fields of history, archaeology, ethnology and cultural studies. The National Collection consists of more than four million artifacts, specimens, works of art, written documents, and sound and visual recordings. More than 218,000 artifacts in the collection are accessible in an online database.

The Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) is a municipal gallery in Ottawa, Ontario that opened in 1988, when a grassroots group of artists and city-builders fought to have a gallery that presented and collected the art of our region, so that our artists could represent the City of Ottawa to the nation and to the world. It is an independent, not-for-profit, charitable organization governed by a volunteer board of directors. The gallery has a permanent collection of over one thousand works, houses the City of Ottawa-owned Firestone Collection of Canadian Art, and provides community, educational and public programming. The OAG focuses on acquiring, interpreting, and sharing art as well as acting as a cultural meeting place.

This project was made possible with support from OC Transpo. Whether you’re returning to work in-office, beginning a new school year, or adjusting to a new fall routine, OC Transpo has you covered.
