MOA Orange Shirt Day Event Features Dallas Hunt

September 21, 2021

Dallas Hunt, 2021 Wall Scholar, is part of MOA’s popular Sound House series as it returns for its third season with a reflective night of poetry, hip hop, and spoken word by Indigenous artists to mark Orange Shirt Day on Thursday, September 30.

The event begins with an orange lantern procession in honour of residential school survivors, and for the children who never made it home. Pick up a lantern when you check in at the lobby, and make your way down to the Haida House to hang it up in a commemorative display. The evening will feature a powerful showcase of unique talents from the invited Indigenous artists. The docket includes spoken word artist Tawahum Bige, hip hop artist Keliya, and poet Dallas Hunt.

Sound House is MOA’s music series, now in its third season, featuring a fantastic and eclectic lineup of Vancouver bands and artists—from spoken word to hip hop to soul. Sound House is a celebration of culture and music, set in MOA’s Haida House, against a stunning backdrop of Northwest Coast art and architecture. Let the picturesque views and scent of cedar inhabit your senses.

Sound House: Never Forgotten is part of the UBC ARTIVISM Festival 2021: Queering the Self
