The event creator says
I am working on a project at the Gardiner Museum and am making tiles that will be incorporated into a dance performance. These tiles will have stories about my relationship to my indigenous identity as a mixed Mi'kmaq 2Spirit & queer person.

I would LOVE for you to come and make some tiles too! There will be a series of workshops to make tiles and access and share teachings and talk about our relationship to our identities as 2-Spirit/queer Indigenous people.

Come learn about Honourable Harvest teachings for collecting clay in your area, how to process clay, learn about the relationship between ceramics and our indigeneity and muck around in some clay and make things! You don't have to make tiles because you come. You can also just come for the conversation, teachings, and to make something of your choice too.

Meal provided and tokens for a limited number of participants upon registration.
Registration not required though.
This workshop series is reserved for participants who are both indigenous/mixed and 2Spirit/queer/LGBT folks exclusively.
