Mural-painting festival showcases Indigenous strength

The Strong People, Strong Communities mural-painting festival highlights positive Indigenous stories. The project paired 11 young artists with 11 elders in six teams, each of which painted a mural with a distinct theme. The artists collaborated virtually on the designs and while some artists attended the festival to paint together others were produced digitally. The murals showcase the positive contributions of a diversity of Indigenous voices - including LGBTQ2S+, women, and youth – which helps them feel empowered and contributes to a sense of confidence in their cultural identities.
