Change The Bill

exhibition in-person

The Native Women’s Association of Canada presents ‘Change The Bill’. A design project that calls for reconciliation through art. For as long as Canada has been printing money, an Indigenous woman has never appeared on a Canadian banknote. To lobby for change, Indigenous artists have reimagined the $20 bill with their Indigenous women heroes. Prints of the artwork will be on display and for sale at The Local Gallery for the duration of DesignTO. You can also buy the artwork online. 100% of the proceeds will go the artist. #ChangeTheBill
