Creative Arts as a Pathway to Reconciliation
Kelly Terbasket, co-founder of IndigenEYEZ and kinSHIFT, will share how combining creative arts practices with land-based learning offers medicine for our troubled relationships, particularly between Indigenous peoples and settlers. Called the creative empowerment model, this creative play allows us to access our imagination, vulnerability, and participate in co-learning in a way that builds trust. Join us for this original, important interactive workshop.
This session has limited space and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please arrive on time to ensure you will have access.
This session is participatory and will include breakout groups for discussion.
Kelly is focused on the role of relationships in systems change and is sought out for her capacity to help deepen relations at a time in history when connections across differences are essential. Kelly has a BSW, Executive Coaching Certification, and extensive training in Creative Facilitation through Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE Global). She lives in her family’s ancestral home on the Blind Creek Reserve in Syilx territory in the South Okanagan-Similkameen.
