From August 19-22, 2018, WHEAT Institute Art Therapy and Expressive Arts Therapy Diploma program students studied together under the direction of Victoria McIntosh in the course Indigenous Ways of Knowing Through the Arts.
The class offered participants exposure to a local Indigenous world view through Indigenous art and personal art-making. Students explored methodologies, concepts, cultural perspectives, ceremony, and art forms of Indigenous peoples of Manitoba. In addition, students explored how art can assist in the reconciliation process as a tool for healing, self-understanding, and dialogue.
