Event description
Explore your personal & business branding, understand your artist style, and practice communicating your art practice from a cultural lens.

About this event

Join MNBC's Ministry of Culture, Heritage and Language (CHL) with Métis artist and educator Kim Steward to explore branding, artistic style, and promotion, all from a Michif perspective that honours cultural values.

About Kim

Kim Stewart is a life-long visual artist whose creative practice is nourished by her cultural heritage. Kim lives a blended Euro-Indigenous life, constructing artwork that combines Cree-Métis artforms with pop culture, memorabilia, historical documents and photos from her past. Recently, Kim was awarded a grant from the Canada Council of the Arts for her artistic research on ‘50’s, 60’s and ‘70’s Cowboy and Indian pop culture on Métis identity. This led to her current work on counter mapping which involves beading on vintage maps of Canada to represent the indigenous voice.

Kim’s formal art training includes associate degrees in Fine Art, Graphic Design and Illustration, and a Master’s Degree in Art Education from SFU. Over the last 25 years, she has mentored in beading, caribou hair tufting, drum making and hide tanning. Some of her mentors include Alberta TwentyStands, (Cheyenne), Brenda Crabtree (Nlaka'pamux and Sto:lo) and Lynette LaFontaine (Métis), elders Lucy and Shirley Bock (Carrier), Mary Ghostkeeper (Métis), and Mrs. Gertie Regan (Métis).

Kim's Website & Socials

Kim is dedicated to sharing her knowledge with others through workshops, mentorships, and teaching in her online school at art4lifelearn.ca.

This workshop is open to Métis Citizens and self-identified of all ages living in BC.
