Description

ART AND WELLNESS: AN INDIGENOUS PERSPECTIVE + DRAWING WORKSHOP w/ NATALIE KING

At the end of each September Culture Days invites millions of Canadians to get hands-on and behind-the-scenes to highlight the importance of arts and culture in our communities.

As a Culture Days participant, this Wigwam Chi-Chemung event will explore “creativity, the arts, and well-being” through an Indigenous lens with two art-making workshops as well as talks hosted by Veronica Johnny & Elder Duke Redbird.

By registering for this event you will be taking part in the drawing workshop taking place after the talks. There is also a dancing workshop taking place at the same time. If you would rather register for that workshop, please click here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/wigwam-chi-chemung-art-wellness-dance-workshop-tickets-68533384197

We kindly ask that you only register for either the dancing workshop or the drawing workshop as both have limited space and take place at the same time.

If you just want to attend the talk portion of the event and visit the boat, you don't need to register and can show up to the Trillium Park Pavilion at the time indicated below.
