O k’inadas // complicated reconciliations: an artist residency

This residency is part of a Summer Indigenous Art Intensive Program at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus, activated  for posts, visuals, and discussion from July 04 to Aug 16, 2016 to capture the thoughts behind the “O k’inadas” residency program. The k’inadas artist collective acknowledges an award received from the {Re}conciliation initiative with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.

Please do explore this site. You will find recent posting scrolling above, and others in the News tab in the menu, or more specific categories searchable through the Flow tab. There are a variety of posts to read: discussions of recent panels, insights from other blogs, events such as the Earth Line Tattoo collective (also part of this residency), reflections on roundtables, a regularly updated calendar, and lots of photos and videos as they emerge.
