The Awakeners - The Message Is The Art

Laura meets three very different visual artists with unique messages. She discovers how Tom Baril's photographs take the viewer on a haunting journey to honour the children of missing and murdered Indigenous women. Mackenzie Brown's boldly coloured paintings and healing drumming take her audiences on a mystical tour of Indigenous culture. And Jolanta Bird uses her photography to deliver commercial messages, but in her private time she creates her own strong perspective through her lens. And finally, Laura attends a live performance by slam-poet and twin-spirited Gabe Calderon, who rocks the world with powerful spoken messages that provoke soul searching.
