DECOLONIZING

Rerooting: Art Workshops Series

Follow us on Instagram!

REROOTING Art Showcase happening in February 2022!

Over the past year, the REROOTING art workshop series has engaged Indigenous artists to connect with the community through a series of community art projects. During these workshops, Indigenous artists facilitated intercultural dialogues and created art that built connections between newcomers and the Indigenous community. Through art, they broke through language barriers and built trust and understanding across cultures.

We are grateful to have the involvement of artists Charlene Johnny, Leonard ‘Tiger’ Williams, Kallfümalen – Sussan YáñezAaniya Asrani and Atheana Picha.

The REROOTING art workshop series continues throughout January and February in 2022, culminating in an Art Showcase event at the end of February which will take place at the Clinton Park Fieldhouse.

This showcase will celebrate the art and stories gathered throughout the past year and honour the people who took part in this project.

Stay tuned for more details!
