Shining a light on work that is both urgent and long-term, #callresponse acts as a connective support system that begins with commissioned artworks created by Indigenous North American women artists and their invited guest respondents.

The hashtag #callresponse connects the geographically diverse sites and provides opportunities for networked exchanges.
