Ways of Making: Dreamwork
The seasons are changing, and the Ways of Making program is returning to discussion based sessions where artists are invited to learn and ask questions. This course will focus on the deep history of dreamwork and the role of Dreamers within Indigenous communities. Dreamwork is an Indigenous practice that relies on communication and community. Dreams share so much information about us and the practice of paying attention and interpreting that information is something we will explore as a group. This will be chance to learn about Indigenous history while showing respect for those teachings.
This class is open to mixed ability participants ages 16+.
