Family Sundays

Facilitated by LaMeia Reddick, the focus for this workshop will be families and chosen families coming together. We will explore the designs of different cultural symbols that represent this theme. LaMeia will share her stories and lessons of the Adinkra symbols that originate in West Africa. Families and friends will then share their own stories and have an opportunity to create their symbols of togetherness using a variety of printmaking techniques.

This Family Sunday is inspired by the exhibition Here We Are Here: Black Canadian Contemporary Art.
