Welcome Braelyn and Audrey!
Eyelevel is beyond excited to introduce you to these two brilliant lovelies that have joined our team! Welcome Braelyn and Audrey!
Braelyn Cyr will be working with us for the next 7 months as our Mamanaw Pekiskwewina | Mother Tongues Assistant Curator. During her time with Eyelevel, Braelyn will be developing community-centred programming in collaboration with Missy LeBlanc that explores Indigenous language preservation and revitalization within Mi'kma'ki. Mamanaw Pekiskwewina | Mother Tongues is a project presented in partnership with TRUCK Contemporary Art. We're so excited to see how this project unfolds under Braelyn's care –– stay tuned for updates and public events this fall.
Braelyn Cyr (she/her) was born in Campbellton, New Brunswick. She is a Mi’kmaq artist and 2019 graduate of the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design’s aboriginal visual arts program. Her primary focus is creating Wampum belts as well as writing and illustrating her own aboriginal children’s books, connecting her heritage to modern day society.
If you would like to get in touch with Braelyn and welcome her, she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Audrey Chan will be with us until early September as our Summer Programs Coordinator (YCW Summer Student) leading the production of our summer residency program HEAT WAVES along with supporting Eyelevel's bookstore reopening, our other fun summer projects, and managing our social media. We're so thankful to have Audrey here to support and develop our busiest time of year and look forward to growing with them in this learning position.
Audrey Chan (they/them) is a Hong Kong-born-and-raised, queer, and non-binary settler living and learning in Kjipuktuk. Audrey is currently a student at the University of King's College studying contemporary philosophy and cinema. They are interested in the intersections between documentary ethics, queerness, race, and diasporic cultural identity, and have been experimenting with image-making processes ever since their dad handed down his old photography gear to them when they were young. Audrey strongly believes that the arts should be accessible for all –– they are super excited to join the team at Eyelevel, and to both learn from and support the work of our community's phenomenal artists.
