Meagan Musseau (BFA (VA) class of ’14) is an interdisciplinary artist of Mi’kMaq and French ancestry, originally from Curling, Newfoundland (Elamstukwek, Ktaqmkuk territory of Mi’kma’ki). After graduation, Meagan spent some time on the west, west coast, and has recently returned home. We talk about that, about what her time away meant, as well as the return home, the evolution of her practice, and what it’s like to be an indigenous artist on the west coast of Newfoundland.
Meagan’s bio and CV are on her website, and I really encourage you to check that out.
And here are links to a few of the other organizations that we talked about:
Indigenous Arts Program, Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity
Indigenous youth/emerging Artist Program (Open Space, Victoria, BC)
VANL-CARFAC (Visual Artists’ Association of Newfoundland and Labrador/Canadian Artists Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens)
