University of British Columbia: Art+Reconciliation

Art+Reconciliation is a summer program that addresses how artistic practices can engage in questions of reconciliation, most particularly in the Canadian context of residential schools, and the associated and ongoing Truth and Reconciliation Commission. As part of the process, the students explore the history of the residential school system in Canada, discuss strategies for creating and increasing an awareness of Indigenous practices and histories from Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives, and engage in critical inquiry of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission on Indian Residential Schools to determine how artistic media can be a driving force in this articulation. The Summer Indigenous Art Intensive Program is coordinated by the Creative Studies Department at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus, and features a core group of senior artists as well as visiting studio artists and curators. It was ongoing from 2013- 2017.
