Finding Your Red Road to Health: Re-Creating the Village, a local Indigenous program, is seeking submissions from Indigenous youth (0-29), or groups of youth, for two mural projects with the theme of reconnecting to the land and to each other.
There are two murals: one is 8’x8’ and the second is 20’x8’.
Finding Your Red Road to Health: Re-Creating the Village is an Island Health – Aboriginal Health Initiative Program funded initiative. It is the culmination of a four-year program through the Upper Island Women of Native Ancestry. Interested artists will submit their project ideas to the program facilitator Lauren Dean and two artists will be selected. Materials and honoraria will be provided. Deadline to submit project ideas is Aug. 15, 2020.
Through a variety of projects, Finding Your Red Road to Health will assist in building relationships and partnerships within the community and inspire others to build the same in their communities.
“Together, we will develop a way to connect all people with the land and each other,” said program facilitator, Lauren Dean. “Leading to the sharing and preservation of cultural wisdom and knowledge, life experience and life skills will be documented in a form accessible to all age groups. It is our goal that participants will feel more connected to the people in their community as well as their culture.”
