We are hosting a two-day Artist Forum that will stimulate discourse on transmission of knowledge as it relates to artistic practice. Through centring the discussion on Indigenous principles of learning, carvers and weavers will reflect on their personal artistic journey and role in furthering the development of the coastal carving arts.

Artists introduce themselves, their carving style and touch base on professional or personal relationships that have had a significant impact on their artistic practice.
