The AACC is very pleased to be working on this monumental project with partners, friends, artists and community members.
The Indigenous Arts Conference is a small inclusive community-centred event for creating, sharing and [re]learning our Indigenous art forms.
The conference will ensure the transfer of knowledge and spirituality related to the production of our traditional Indigenous art forms and empower and arm our Indigenous women entrepreneurs with information, resources and opportunity to maximize their capacity to sustain entrepreneurship.
Art workshops are focused on Indigenous women who 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.
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, partners 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. If you'd like to know more about the AACC, please explore our website.
The objective of this conference
Workshop registration will open in February.
