The Norva Centers Karen Clark advises thanks to local funding from the Flin Flon Teachers Association and the Rotary Club Flin Flon has a work of art from the National Resilience Project. It is located on a billboard on Third Avenue hill.
The Resilience billboard exhibition is a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report’s call for the integration of Indigenous history, heritage values and memory practices into Canada’s national heritage and history. This project is an answer to that call by the Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art through creative art of reconciliation and public celebration and commemoration of the work of Indigenous women artists.
The billboard in Flin Flon is the work of Jaime Black an emerging Metis artist based in Winnipeg. She has taught in Opaskwayak Cree Nation in The Pas and has long been involved in the Aboriginal writers and artist’s community in Winnipeg. In her art work she attempts to create dialogue around social and political events and issues through provocation or creating space for reflection.
