4th Space

In November 2019, participants’ artwork and photos from the retreat were exhibited over a week-long showing titled Gathering Place at Concordia University’s 4th Space. Retreat participants were invited to a reunion event to open the exhibit, reconnect and celebrate the launch of Land As Our Teacher, the continuation of the Restoring Our Roots work through a separate multi-year grant.

During the week, attendees took part in storytelling sessions, drumming, song, workshops such as medicine bag making and screen printing, and the option to receive traditional tattooing.
