Join us on February 21 at 12:15 for a talk by Anna Hudson, Principal Investigator on the Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage project. The goal of Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage is to conduct collaborative research on the contribution of Inuit visual culture, art, and performance to Inuit language preservation, social well-being, and cultural identity.

Professor Anna Hudson is an art historian and curator specializing in Canadian and Indigenous art at York University (Toronto). Hudson’s practice is public facing, community engaged and draws from close community collaboration to open new possibilities for understanding the contribution of artists in Canada globally, and the amplification of the voices seldom heard. She is currently a York Research Chair leading Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage—a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada research-creation collaboration aimed at recovering, preserving, documenting, facilitating and disseminating Inuit knowledge, culture and creativity. Drawing from her doctoral dissertation, Art and Social Progress: the Toronto community of Painters (1933-1950), Hudson continues historical research on humanism and socially-conscious cultural engagement in twentieth-century art.
