Indigenous Arts Series

The Indigenous Arts Series consists of six artmaking workshops developed and facilitated by artists based in Katarokwi and Tyendinaga throughout 2022. These workshops are designed to teach participants both about the artmaking process itself and the history and teachings associated with the traditional artforms explored in each session. Stay tuned for details about future workshops!
