Amber Dawn Bellemare is the program coordinator for the Truth, Healing, and Reconciliation Initiative for the Canadian Unitarian Council and the proud founder and member of The Wolf Lab, a women’s art collective that nurtures the creative entrepreneurial spirit of women in a collaborative setting. Calling Montreal her home, this multi-disciplined artist’s work involves themes of vulnerability, resilience, and belonging. Her Communications and First Peoples studies prompted her to produce and direct documentaries with Indigenous communities, most notably the Inuit population in Nunavik, Canada. Bellemare is grateful to serve her UU community as a video and photo content creator. Her latest piece, The Parlour Project: Spider, Fly, and Web is an unprecedented immersive installation, photo exposé, with video projections and ceremonial performance that challenges social norms regarding the commodification of the feminine divine.
