Collective Culture: Sacred Skin (Online Talk)

Tattoo culture has been influenced by indigenous symbols and art from around the world, though many people are oblivious to the origins of the images etched on their skin.

There is a new wave of tattoo artists that are changing that, by embracing their roots, emphasizing the importance of traditional techniques and honouring the practices of their communities. Moderated by Syd Beaumont and Keesha Chung, this discussion invited Inuit tattoo artist Jana Angulalik, and Filipina multidisciplinary artist Ilona Fiddy to talk about their work, and how their gender, heritage and history informs their art.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to Primary Colours, an organization with the objective to place Indigenous arts at the centre of the Canadian arts system.
