‘Listen to the Walls’: Decolonizing the Streets of Montreal Through Art

Street art has been a trend that for many years has been looked down upon. A positive and inclusive message could perhaps change that thought. In Montreal, Unceded Voice is a street art initiative that brings Indigenous-identified women, women of color, queer, two-spirit and gender nonconforming artists. Each piece of art expresses current and historical issues that have been and are being faced by the categories of people listed above. Overall, this initiative does not only allow for decolonization of a settler mindset. It also will enable settlers who are being oppressed to an artistic outlet where they can work becoming allies with indigenous communities.
