Reframing Relations is currently on hiatus as we take time to return following the impact of COVID-19 and to access where our community’s needs are now.
Reframing Relations brings Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists together in schools, community settings, organizations, and corporations to facilitate workshops that build understanding around Indigeneity. This program is suitable for Indigenous, non-Indigenous, and mixed audiences. Participants work together on collaborative, arts-based ‘Statements of Understanding’ to discover where their awareness of Indigenous issues is located today, where they have gaps in their knowledge, and what concrete actions can be taken to support positive social transformation. Reframing Relations facilitators are experienced artists and educators who model allyship, vulnerability, and intercultural dialogue. Reframing Relations is about moving forward together.
