Captured in 360, Ri’ken:’a (my younger brother) is an autobiographical short detailing a day in the life of two siblings in Toronto during a COVID-19 lockdown. Through storytelling, movement, and tenderness, Mel and Matt break from the monotony and isolation of quarantine—if only for a short time.

Based in Tkaronto, Melissa Johns is a multimedia visual artist and educator from a mixed Mohawk (Turtle Clan) and French Canadian background. Melissa’s visual practice manifests at the convergence of contemporary media, using interdisciplinary methods to collect, preserve, and transform fragments of the stories around her.

We acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon covenant, a treaty whose spirit is one based in collective stewardship and reciprocity. We take the spirit of this covenant to the core of our operations as we bring artists and audiences from many nations across the globe together through our various initiatives and activities.
