Qalipu First Nation is committed to supporting Mi’kmaq artists during this time when opportunities for events including exhibitions, music shows, and workshops have essentially disappeared. We’re pleased to announce that our Experience Qalipu division will support Mi’kmaq artists and craftspeople through a Virtual Artist Series that will promote four local creators. Throughout the months of June and July, we will be sharing videos highlighting the work of Marcus Gosse, Marcella Williams, Cole Stagg, and Tyrone Mulrooney.
Tara Saunders, Director of Community Development, explains the project as “an outlet for Mi’kmaq artists to be celebrated while also passing on their traditional skills and teaching others”.
The first video will be Petroglyph drawing with Stephenville artist, Marcus Gosse. This video will be shared on the Qalipu First Nation Facebook Page on Wednesday, June 10th, at 7: 30PM.
Watch for more details coming soon!
