As the 2013 year comes to an end Aanmitaagzi would like to celebrate all the work that has gone into the collaborative development workshops of our large scale “Dances of Resistance” project. During this year hundreds of people have been involved in different capacities and we are looking to bring everyone together to showcase works in progress and share stories as we end our year. This also marks the last day for Aanmitaagzi events in 2013 which will start back up during the week of January 13th, 2014. Come out on December 21st for great snacks and refreshments as well as lots of community performances and presentations. We look forward to seeing you there!
Located at: Big Medicine Studio, 161 Couchie Memorial Drive.

Just wanted to show off a video about Anaamimikom (Under the Surface) which was the theme of Ice Follies 2012 and Aanmitaagzi was heavily involved as part of our Dances of Resistance development. We plan to continue this work into next years Ice Follies 2014 Ohkwamingininiwug (Ice People).
We are immersed in the summer arts program right now working with all these great youth on some large scale puppets for the Dances of Resistance presentation next year. They are in the middle of a dance/movement exercise session and we just have to share it with everyone. There are so many great things happening here it is a lot of fun.
We are doing a lot of Artist Days in preparation for our upcoming Dances of Resistance Works In Progress taking place in the middle of June. There will be a lot of opportunities to get involved and a lot of creation events that include music, dance, paint, poetry, film, writing, puppets, theatre and all forms of creation.
