Artist Residency in Banff, Canada

In Oct 2016, Jessie was chosen to represent Australia in the Indigenous tri-nation project called Re(claim) hosted by Banff Arts Centre in Cananda.

Re(Claim) is an interdisciplinary music program in which Indigenous artists ‘reclaim’ the era of silent films, moving and still images made about Indigenous peoples. Through live performance, music creation, composition, song, spoken word, dance, film and photography, this new program subverts the gaze behind the camera and brings a fresh voice to an era of silence.

The project is now looking to tour Australia and New Zealand in 2018 and 2019.
