Judith DesBrisay
contemporary artist


After participating in a 2014 Sustainable Canada Dialogues visioning workshop , Judith shared this art work with SCD. She states: “My husband, Mike Cannell, and I visited Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet) as part of our extensive 2006 Arctic explorations with Adventure Canada. We toured the picturesque community where we were privileged to witness a cultural presentation which included Inuit games and throat singing at the community centre. This 2006 "snapshot in time" shows a young mother and child framed by a historic photograph of an elder …their multiple generations echoing in our memories. It underscores inter- generational importance, interaction and above all: the necessity to acknowledge historical context when seeking to understand and appreciate current life and future visions for individuals, families and communities.”
