As a proud sponsor, Brock University will host a series of creative workshops during Celebration of Nations this weekend.
Held from Friday, Sept. 9 to Sunday, Sept. 11, Niagara’s annual Indigenous arts gathering celebrates creativity, diversity and resilience. Celebration of Nations is part of a long-term vision of the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, Indigenous consulting company Kakekalanicks and the City of St. Catharines to build on the Two Row Wampum that promotes all Nations walking together, in parallel, with respect, compassion and understanding to cultivate an inclusive community for a shared future.
The event is curated and juried by Artistic Director Michele-Elise Burnett (Métis) and Artistic Producer Tim Johnson (Mohawk), with the support of the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre team.
Throughout the weekend, Brock will host workshops focused on pottery, moccasin making, beading and jewelry creation at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines.
Registration is required for all workshops. Please visit the Celebration of Nations box office for more information.
