What makes a place somewhere?
When does a point on a map become a place? What makes a place have meaning?
At the heart of Corner Brook, along the Humber River / Maqtukwek, is a small white building, opposite the Mill. It is now the Centre for Research and Innovation of Grenfell Campus. This patch of land contains a complicated story. The untold and invisible histories of the city run through this place. And the possibilities of the future are here too.
Somewhere? is a program of events where Indigenous artists, environmentalists, dramatists, scholars, and community members will come together through discussion and art-making workshops to re-imagine what this place is now and can become. We will lay the foundation for a program of creative public activities to showcase these stories. Join us to remake the map and turn this place into a somewhere.
Somewhere? is a partnership of Grenfell Campus, the Rotary Arts Centre, and the Newfoundland and Labrador Indigenous Tourism Association.
