Forge Project is a Native-led initiative centered on Indigenous art, decolonial education and supporting leaders in culture, food security and land justice.

Candice was part of the curatorial team for the Canadian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale, featuring the work of the media art collective Isuma; and co-curator of notable exhibitions, including the national traveling survey Art for New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now; SITElines.2018: Casa Tomada, SITE Santa Fe; documenta 14, Athens and Kassel; and Sakahan: International Indigenous Art, National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.
