In 2013, MT Space began creation on a new piece that brought together a team of culturally diverse and Indigenous artists to explore global events that shaped and are shaping our current world, including the Arab Spring, Occupy, and Idle No More movements.

Now, five years later, the spring has turned into a harsh winter. As people flee their homes creating one of the most severe refugee crises in history, and the land now called Canada becomes home to a displaced Syrian population, resurgent Indigenous communities across Turtle Island are fighting for control of their lives and lands.

Through the story of a Syrian family being separated, we reflect on interconnected histories of displacement, colonization, and the imposition of artificial borders, raising the questions: what does it mean to occupy, to resist, to survive?
