Weekly on Tuesdays
We are excited to offer our Dreamwork community class again in an online version. Please join us over zoom for discussions, artist talks and creation stories with a Guest Elder.
Dreams play an important part in art making and help shape the stories shared through tipi-making and regalia creation. We will be learning about moments in Blackfoot history where dreams helped leaders make decisions. Over the 8 weeks we will have space for listening to guest speakers and each other and space for sharing our different perspectives.
This class is open to mixed ability participants ages 16+.
There is financial support available through scholarships. If you are interested in applying for financial support, please contact Kylie Poppe at 403-253-3174 ext. 0 for scholarship information. Scholarships will cover 100% of the class fee.

Bear Hat has since gone on to work with the Banff Centre as a Collections Practicum (formally work study) with the Walter Phillips Gallery, TRUCK Contemporary Art in Calgary as Engagement Coordinator and is currently Coordinator of Indigenous Programs at the National accessArts Centre. Bear Hat is interested in the many ways knowledge can be exchanged within family mentorships and in return translated and honoured. Video, text, sound and paper-based works are the materials and means of production she uses as a platform for storytelling.
