Inter Arts Matrix is located inside The Haldimand Tract, in the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our work is done on stolen land.

As we move forward, we deeply appreciate any feedback on our process, including difficult feedback from BIPOC voices. To get in touch, email us at email@example.com or write to us by this form.

However, nothing online is truly anonymous - please keep this in mind as you provide feedback, and don't share anything you don't feel comfortable with.)
