Niamh Dooley Designs Mural 150 For Roseau River First Nation

Niamh Dooley, an Anishininew (Ojibway-Cree) and Irish contemporary artist, got involved in Mural 150, a celebration of Manitoba's 150 years in Confederation, after being approached by Urban Shaman, the Aboriginal Contemporary Art Gallery in Winnipeg.

Dooley's outdoor mural will be designed in Roseau River First Nation, one of seven Manitoba communities, and it will tell the story of the community where it is placed with the aim of inspiring art, storytelling, and a sense of pride.


Niamh Dooley grew-up in Sioux Lookout, Ontario (Treaty 3 Territory), and she moved to Winnipeg in 2012 to study at the University of Manitoba School of Art, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in the Honors Program. Currently, Dooley is a band member of the St. Theresa Point First Nation, part of the Island Lake communities in Treaty 5 territory), and is now working on a Bachelor of Arts degree.
