Pjilita’q Mi’kmaki: L’nuite’tmukl tan Wejkuwaql Naqwe’kl | International Gathering: Indigenous Place-making

This Closing/Opening keynote presentation by Ursula Johnson explores current Indigenous art actions locally and globally emphasizing Indigenous place-making and the unique connections between arts actions, communities, and our individual relationships to the land.

Ursula will explore and reflect on the impacts of arts action enhancing a sense of appreciation, understanding, and belonging, which may lead to healthier social interactions between many peoples.
