2167: An Indigenous VR Project

2167 is a virtual reality project commissioned and produced by TIFF, imagineNATIVE, Pinnguaq, and the Initiative for Indigenous Futures.

As part of TIFF’s sesquicentennial initiative Canada on Screen, several Indigenous filmmakers and artists – Danis Goulet, Kent Monkman, Scott Benesiinaabandan, and Postcommodity – were commissioned to create VR projects envisioning Indigenous life 150 years into the future.

SAW Video Media Art Centre is proud to be a stop on the 2167 tour and present this unique VR experience to the Ottawa public. The four day exhibition will conclude with a presentation and discussion led by media artist Scott Benesiinaabandan, which will take place on Sunday, December 10th at The Knot Project Space.
