About The Festival

This years festival is a reconciliation event, a festival of art to engage the hearts and minds of a community. Discussions about culture, governance, ancestors, land, education, and resilience of our people; an awareness of future issues that all Indigenous and northern peoples face as they rebuild a nation that was on the brink of destruction. Conversations with local Elders and youth can help determine the social compass and implementation of employment, awareness and respect, pride and resolve to finally be incorporated in to a single public display and mural.

Art, and the inspiration behind these public art pieces will be the conversation between Elders and youth. The final designs, will be a collaborative effort between the Elders, Youth and mentors. Once the designs are completed, Youth will be hired along side professional artists to reflect on the conversations and design. The location of the public art pieces are to be determined by the participating communities and are to be a lasting memoir and reminder of the discussion, passion and Sacred Brush.

The Elders

A nations historic memory is often passed from one generation to the next through story-telling; it is still true today, teaching of song, dance, carving, traditional tools, laws, land conservation, resources and arts are just a few and each contributes to the complexities of a unique culture. Awareness and preservation, recording events help remind us where we’re from, who we’re from and in a strengthening effort it explore future opportunities.

Preservation of ones life experience is a priority, another is understanding vital changes in technology and environment. This is why conversations between young and the elder must always be open, to assist with making the whole community strong and to learn from one another; to hold sacred all that was and to lift the people who will make the difference in the future.
