The Legacy Blanket encourages respectful exchange between youth, artists and community. Join us as we gather to celebrate and recognize the sharing of Indigenous stories and knowledge. This exhibition and gathering acknowledges all participants including: local youth, artists, community, as well as the cultural and educational organizations involved.
This project, initiated locally, brings together unique creative forms – art, design, music and stories. Indigenous stories are contextualized within these textile works, with a focus on historic events, resilience, wellness, and healing. The Legacy Blanket encourages exploration, dialogue, enjoyment, sharing and caring. These Indigenous works were created through collaborations between community youth and elders.
