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.
The second day will focus on the opportunity for the artist to share and experience the raising of the NuuWaya’Sum Totem Pole. We will end the day with an intimate community dinner at the gardens with the participating carvers and artists.
Walk through the NaaWaya’Sum Coastal Indigenous Gardens with stories from the area and significant ecological wonders.
Joe and Gordon talk about the process of caving the totem pole. The presentation will include a short film premiere documentation of the NuuWayaSum Totem Pole Project by Jeremy Williams.
Gordon speaks to the importance of taking the time to learn traditional values and teachings passed on to the next generation as the art form continues to evolve.
