As an organization that serves as a connecting point between Edmonton’s vulnerable youth and the larger Edmonton community, iHuman brings youth and community members together in free public workshops to explore how an art form that is in many cases viewed solely as a tool for vandalism can be used to enhance community dialogue and beautify this city through a pop-up free wall.
Saturday July 1: Cheyenne Rain LeGrande is an emerging Nehiyaw(Cree) artist. Her art is strongly influenced by her culture. She is inspired by the Nehiyaw way of being and knowing. In this artwork Cheyenne will demonstrate her own perspective on the 150 years of indigenous resilience, as a Cree indigenous woman. With Nikawiy (her mother) by my side they will share their Nehiyaw experience. Cheyenne is a third year student at Emily Carr University.
