Event Notes

× Having Hope: A Hand Drum Song Cycle Created and Performed by Nicole Joy-Fraser Through her gifts of song and hand drum, 60’s Scoop witness Nicole Joy-Fraser shares the reclamation of her Indigenous identity, her journey of healing and her personal decolonization through the performing arts.

Birthed from an invitation by her colleague and mentor Maja Ardal, Nicole thought if she replaced the piano and bar scene of a Cabaret-style concert with the hand drum and a back yard, then it could be an opportunity for a small audience to learn and hear her story.

Ultimately this is the perspective of a professional Indigenous Artist and Cultural Arts worker who has been establishing herself over the last 20 years with the incredible support of her family, her community and her ancestral lineage. This is the official premiere and first time that Nicole is devising solo-work. Kininâskomitin. Performances: September 23, 2020 at 6pm and September 24, 2020 at 6pm Venue: Backyard of a private residence at 16 Lougheed Road, Barrie
