    11:00 - 13:00


    Morning Jam is about letting go and grooving in safe spaces with good people. Do you like to Dance? #MorningJamForever

    Music by Geronimo Inutiq | 
    Presented in partnership with Asinabka Film and Media Arts Festival

    Morning Jam was created out of the need to find spaces and time to really groove without judgment. The project was launched in the spring of 2015 and has been growing into a unique throw down that runs for two hours. Expect treats from local shops, great music from local dj's/music selectors and GOOD VIBES!!!

    This event is family friendly and is open to everyone. Please feel free to share this event with anyone who enjoys dancing, laughing and creating in the company of awesome people!

    Geronimo Inutiq
    From Electronic music composition, to media-arts installation Geronimo Inutiq has sought to express - with a contemporary tool-set - a unique connection to traditions, as well as a will to innovate outside of the common discourse. Guided by the notion that creative personal expression and appreciation is a very subjective and individual experience, Geronimo Inutiq is interested in the dialogue that emerges between the individual and the increasingly large and complex interrelated circles of socially constructed systems of meaning. That - and, an arbitrary sense of aesthetics. A good portion of his childhood was spent in the eastern arctic on Baffin Island - close to the Inuktitut language and culture of his mother's family, and the territory - which provided the space to contemplate the grandeur and extremities of nature. Balance that with roots in Quebec and Montreal - and a rather cosmopolitan sensibility and education - and you get a better picture of part of the cultural context Geronimo has been inspired to create in.
