This session is led by Métis-Assiniboine artist Sophie Dow and hosted by Polish-Canadian Malgorzata Nowacka-May. Cultural knowledge within this workshop is brought from Elders and teachers gathered over 30 years, who wished for these lessons to be learned by all.
Please bring your questions, insights, concerns and thoughts, anonymously or not and we will work through them.
We were surprised by the things we discovered on our journey, and hope you will find things to positively surprise yourself with as well.
