À propos

Conference available in French only

As part of the International First Peoples Festival, La Guilde is pleased to welcome artist Sonia Robertson for an artist talk on her creative process and journey. She has a rich and varied background. Her approach is fuelled by the quest for unity, gratitude, the imaginary, the relationship to the spirit worlds, traditional knowledge, and history from a First Nations perspective. She presents here her installation and performance works, more specifically the one exhibited at La Guilde: Umiku Nekaui-Assi | Sang de la terre-mère. The talk ends with a question period where you may learn more about her approach, which is oriented towards art therapy, amongst others. Come and discover Sonia Robertson's fascinating artistic practice!
