Reclaiming our Roots

Indigenous Women Artists Collective

Opening Reception: Friday, April 5th 6-9pm

Exhibition runs: Apr 5th - May 25th, 2019

Artist Art Market, Saturday, May 25th, 11-3pm

Reclaiming our Roots is a show about tradition and the contemporary development of Indigenous practices as working Indigenous women artists with evolving creative practices. The Indigenous Women Artists Collective (IWA) is made up of eleven indigenous self-identified women who have worked out of the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver since before 2013. IWA aims to present their artwork to the general public, to community members across Vancouver, and beyond. Together, they’ve built a platform for Indigenous women to share, teach, and exhibit their creative practices.

The collective teaches workshops in and around the city of Vancouver, and are working on promoting and developing the careers of Indigenous women. IWA has been together since 2014 and has received several awards including awards from the First Peoples Cultural Council in 2014 and 2018. In 2015, IWA exhibited at the Roundhouse and UBC Learning Exchange and are currently planning for their residency this summer through the Creative City Strategy Grant.

Participating artists: Allison Burns Joseph, Arlene Bowman, Chantel Joseph-Bordeau, Coco Agecoutay, Doris Fox, Georgina Wing-K’lem, Haisla Collins, Jacqueline West, Marilyn Mckee, Shevonne Hall, Veronica Iza.

Expressive Arts | New day and time coming soon. 

We invite you to join WePress Open Studio
Mondays 2–4pm Everyone Welcome

The Expressive Arts Group began as a program through the West Coast Mental Health Network. There are about 30 participants, who meet on a drop-in basis every Monday afternoon to paint, make collages, use mark-making tools, do print-making and/or sculpture. No previous art experience is necessary to participate in the group. We operate on the belief that engaging in creative activities is physically and emotionally healing. We provide art materials, instruction (if needed and desired) and support in an inclusive, accessible and safe atmosphere. Free.
If you are interested in attending, please call 604-687-2468

Volunteer Membership Program

Our program offers access to our facility and programs in exchange for volunteering with us. It also offers a wide range of opportunities for learning at all levels, including communication skills, exhibition coordination, learning about non-profit organization management, professional development skills for artists and arts administration skills.
