Headwaters Arts Millcroft Application.

Contact Margi Taylor, Millcroft Inn coordinator, at margi@altonmill.ca with any questions.     The work is lightly juried keeping in mind the following; eleven (11) larger pieces and nine (9) smaller works, a minimum size of 16×20 inches, are needed; pure non-objective abstracts are not suitable; and the lighting is dimmer than in a gallery so brighter works show better.

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather, and on which the Region of Peel operates, is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land. In particular we acknowledge the territory of the Ani-shinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give our respect to its first inhabitants.
