imagineNATIVE presents a large-scale presentation of digital and interactive work in a newly curated space on the main floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. This is an exciting first step in our multi-year process to enhance the presentation, development and discourse on Indigenous-made digital and interactive media at imagineNATIVE.

Come to the iNDigital Space to see and play an exciting showcase of VR, games, interactive websites and more! Listen to digital and interactive artists talk about their works and process during our daily one hour Artist Talk Series (1-2pm everyday Thursday to Saturday).

Come out and experience the opportunity to see the richness of diversity of contemporary Indigenous digital and interactive media artist! With special guest and award winning game designer, Elizabeth LaPensée, presenting her newest project with the Indian Land Tenure Foundation’s When Rivers Were Trails (A choose-your-own adventure about the Anishnaabeg in the 1890’s dealing with the impacts of allotments Acts on Indigenous communities).  

Best of all it’s all free and open to the public, with trained volunteers on hand to lend support!
