The AACC is very pleased to be working on this small project with friends, artists and community members.
The purpose of this project is to provide basic art workshops to people who need more access to learning traditional Indigenous art forms, are subject to restricted budgets and cannot normally afford Indigenous arts workshops, or have been disconnected from their family/community and culture and seek to (re)connect with traditional teachings. Secondarily, the conference will offer a gathering place central to many urban FNMI individuals for evening performance workshops and knowledge sharing.
We welcome all who share our concerns for endangered Indigenous art form and artists and thank those who have already offered their support to this small initiative including Elders, knowledge-keepers, artists and volunteers.
This project is in it's preliminary phase and will rely heavily on funding and volunteers.
If you'd like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We all have a responsibility to teach our youth the history and spirituality that comes with creating hand made items."
