Part of the Storytellers in motion series

In the diverse world of storytelling there are sometimes a few who buck the conventional trends. Dana Claxton is one such storyteller. Her highly diverse career includes documentaries, TV story segments and corporate videos; yet in the eyes of international art critics, Claxton's best work is in the area of experimental film and video art. In recognition of her contributions to contemporary art in Vancouver, she received the prestigious VIVA award from the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Foundation.

Dana Claxton is of mixed heritage and Lakota Sioux descent. Although she lives and works in Vancouver, she grew up in Saskatchewan. She is committed to cross-cultural dialogue that enhances interactions between indigenous people and others and that fosters understanding and respect.
