Sounds Like Canada Series: CaneFire

July 1, 2015

The Sounds Like Canada Series showcases artists that reflect the festival curatorial theme of Canada Day: The Next Generation. As Canada’s demographic shifts, we seek out exemplars of a new Canadian identity. These are artists who employ the traditions and practices of multiple influences: The homelands from which they or their families have come; the events, goings-on and influences from the diverse population among which they now live; and the work from across the city, country and world in which they live.
