REZILIENCE Indigenous Arts Experience is a profound, one-day exhibition that brings together Indigenous artists and creative professionals in diverse fields to promote Indigenous education, art, and culture.
An unprecedented movement in Indigenous communities has arisen. It moves people to recover cultural memory, celebrate survival, and honor our ancestors. This generation is building that movement and we rise like water to quench the thirst for stories, demanding to be felt through song, dance, paint on canvas, and pen upon paper.
This interactive experience will unite communities in an environment that bridges cultural knowledge with contemporary art-making processes. Activities will invite the public to demonstrate their passions and participate in hands-on activities while a multitude of Indigenous artists and art related professionals representing the United States, Canada, and Mexico share their talents, skills, and knowledge in eight creative arenas throughout the day.
We come together to declare the rezilience that has always been within us.
