About the Exhibit

The Art of Reconciliation program explores how Indigenous and non-Indigenous young adults feel about reconciliation and helps them express those feelings through art. The art making process follows a series of preparatory workshops to help them explore the theme of Reconciliation while being supported therapeutically by an Art Therapist. Participant’s final artwork and their artist statements are the result of weeks of reflection, group discussion and deep learning.

The exhibition brings together artwork created by current and past participants in the program and helps bring the broader community into the Reconciliation dialogue.

A Community Celebration event on Friday, March 10 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. opens the exhibition and includes the unveiling of a community made art project, Indigenous vendors, a performance by the Lekwungen Traditional Dancers and more, hosted by Art Napolean, of APTN’S Moosemeat & Marmalade host.
