This event takes place on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, səl̓ilwətaɁɬ, and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nations.
Culture is Healing is a monthly event by and for Indigenous youth to come together to share our culture and have great discussions about things like holistic well-being, harm reduction, sexuality, sexual health, HIV, and Hep C. This is a gender affirming space, and we welcome Indigenous youth with all identities to join us for Culture is Healing.
For the month of November, we will be visiting an Indigenous run and SFU funded art gallery!
From the Website:
“The Bill Reid Gallery is the only public Gallery in Canada dedicated to contemporary Indigenous Northwest Coast Art and was established by the Bill Reid Foundation in 2008, to celebrate the Haida master artist Bill Reid (1920 - 1998), and the diverse living cultures of the Northwest Coast.
The Gallery honours Bill Reid by exhibiting the Bill Reid SFU Art Collection, and presenting special exhibitions and programs that build bridges between all peoples, including Indigenous and settler populations. Our mandate is to promote a greater awareness of Indigenous cultures and values.”
After the gallery visit, we plan to head to a nearby café to have a drink, a snack and a debrief!
This is a free event for all self-identified Indigenous people between the ages of 15 – 29.
Youth of all sexualities, genders, abilities are welcome to join us.
We are able to provide bus tickets at the event and may be able to get bus tickets to you before the event if needed. Please contact us if this is something we can help with.
