Close collaboration between non-indigenous communities and the community of Pikogan has led to four immersive experiences that provide an opportunity to (re)discover the region by celebrating its aquatic resources as well as Anicinape culture.
Throughout the route, the use of multimedia, along with info-panels, delivers opportunities both for immersion and raising awareness.
At Pikogan, under a large tee-pee at the top of the hill, the Anicinapek share their stories through video projections and a documentary-like presentation.
At the municipal well, sound, light, and projections come together to direct your gaze along the course of the underground river.
At the Refuge Pageau, an interactive experience prompts you to reflect on the interplay of ecosystems.
And at the beach, in a unique show come evening, a digital art piece that pays tribute to the legacy of glaciers comes to life on the water thanks to a floating LED screen.
As the bearer of a foundational story, this vast collaborative project is revitalizing an emblematic rural locality through distinct but complementary experiences that entertain visitors from near and far and alert them to the region’s rich heritage.
