What will be left for you, me, and everyone else once every last drop of water has been purchased, poisoned, and desiccated? Where will we go when rents have increased, and minimum wage can no longer house us? Who will we call a community as we venture into the unknown? How will we arrive there?

If Not Here, Then Where is a screening of the film Land (Ab)Use and audience engaged workshop led by Métis filmmaker, Chanelle Lajoie. Lajoie will lead audiences through a factual conversation stimulated by questions that will transport participants to a fictional space which will be collectively built, imagined, and shared. Offerings from participants in this workshop will act as reminders that we hold power in both play and imagination, and these tools are even more effective when shared
