We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty 4 territory and the traditional territory of the Anihšinābēk, Nêhiyawak, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota peoples, and the original home of the Métis/Michif Nation. We recognize that both Indigenous and Métis people are the spiritual and cultural keepers of their traditional lands and still to this day, continue to practice their values, languages, beliefs and knowledge.
Beading Together: Radical Stitch Symposium
Let’s gather for a beading party! Be immersed in artistic innovation and the tactile beauty of beads.
Join the MacKenzie and Shushkitew Collective for a beading symposium and celebration of the exhibition Radical Stitch, curated by Michelle LaVallee, Cathy Mattes, and Sherry Farrell Racette, hosted in-person and onsite at the MacKenzie Art Gallery with some events streaming online. This full-day event will include artist-led hands-on beading circles and workshops, panel discussions, and conversation, offered both in-person and virtually. More information to come—stay tuned!
We have been overwhelmed with interest in this event, and currently registration is at full capacity! You may, however, place yourself on our waitlist to attend on a first come, first served basis. Learn more and register at: mackenzie.art/beading-symposium
The Beading Together: Radical Stitch Symposium is hosted in partnership with Shushkitew Collective, and generously presented by TD Ready Commitment.
