A CELEBRATION OF ART
MONTREAL, QC 1994
NATION TO NATION began officially as a collective in April 1994, when A Celebration of Art took place in one member's studio loft in Old Montreal. This event featured Michelle Thrush's one-woman performance, Reclaim. In addition, five visual artists exhibited their work ( and we called that aspect of the event Nation To Nation). Because of the limited space, only seventy five people were invited "by invitation only". Almost double that amount crammed themselves inside that stuffy loft to watch the performance, see the artwork and then to perform themselves in a lively open-mike that included storytelling, poetry, and a lot of blues harmonica. Nation to Nation was born.
