Family Sunday | Nov 21 | Featuring Aya and Aisha | 2-3pm or 3-4pm
Join us at the Gallery with youth artists Aya Behr and Aisha Haq from the Coup des Déesses (Strike of the Goddesses) project (formerly BIPOC Women Victoria)! Aya and Aisha co-created this intergenerational art collective of women, girls, and non-binary folks that collaborated to create the mural currently featured at the AGGV on the exterior wall facing Moss Street.
From 2-3pm or 3-4pm explore collage making that celebrates strong ancestors, in the spirit of uplifting and empowering each other.

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.
Also, enjoy this special offering from our June 2020 Family Sunday… A free coloring book created by the Tah’lum Indigenous Artists Collective Society! The colouring book (featuring artists Natassia Davies and Sarah Jim) supports Indigenous Language learning (see link below and check out the video featuring the Collective here). 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.
