Join Tania Willard, UBC Okanagan Assistant Professor in Visual Arts, next Wednesday, September 13 and Wednesday, September 20 to create a series of printed hummingbird flags in honour of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Participants will create linocut prints of hummingbirds to honour the children (little spirits) who never came home and remember the unmarked graves at residential schools across Canada, as we continue to demand justice for Indigenous communities.
This marks the second year we are hosting this project in collaboration with the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC Okanagan. The flags produced this year will be added to the collection of last year’s flags and installed in a circle at the courtyard on the UBC Okanagan campus. Installation of the flags will happen on Friday, Sept. 29th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM in the central courtyard on campus.
This workshop is open to students, faculty and the general public. All materials are provided and you do not have to attend all workshops to participate.
