June 21 2pm – 3pm
Take a virtual Field Trip and check out a very cool collaboration between Tah’lum Indigenous Artist Collective Society and Open Space Arts Society. Artists Natassia Davies, Brianna Bear, and Sarah Jim will be joining us virtually (via video coming soon on June 21) to share volume two of a colouring book titled SENĆOŦEN with images, language, and stories. The colouring book (featuring artists Natassia Davies and Sarah Jim) supports Indigenous Language learning so be sure to download this wonderful tool ahead of time (see link below).
This program is part of our new digital arts initiative, FIELD TRIP: ART ACROSS CANADA.
The Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society was founded in March of 2019 to provide advocacy, mentorship, and further opportunity for Indigenous Artists. During the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the collective wanted to find a way to reach out to folks of all ages currently in lockdown. The idea for the colouring book has grown far beyond its modest inception, and it has become a wonderful tool for supporting Indigenous Language learning. Three volumes of the books are planned, with a final expanded compilation volume planned for later this summer.
Family Sunday happens every third Sunday of the month October – June, and is an afternoon of exploring hands-on art-making and ideas for all ages. This recurring program often features special guests like storytellers, artists, performers or musicians.
