This is a free community event at the Rotary Centre for the Arts on Sunday, March 26th for the Indigenous Resilience Festival.
The Indigenous Resilience Festival will showcase Indigenous Elders, youth, leaders, artists, and entrepreneurs sharing knowledge on their challenges that lead to triumphs. You can expect to witness a variety of indigenous excellence presented to you through the creative expression of storytelling, dance, fashion, plant medicine, music and much more.
The festival will run from 10 AM – 9 PM with multiple stages and opportunities to engage with the presenters. There will be a presenter mini-market, a kid’s fun zone, food & workshops.
It is crucial to bring attention to the indigenous experience that has not currently been shared multiculturally. In addition to Western perspectives, we need holistic solutions to coping and healing through the trauma of the COVID-19 pandemic. This festival will provide an opportunity for indigenous individuals impacted by covid19 to explore, share, and celebrate their resilience with the public. Amplifying the indigenous experience in a creative context, where the narrative will be recognized through thoughtful dialogue and performance art.
