books & ideas / events / VANCOUVER - Café des Arts: Understanding Aboriginal Art in Canada Today

Le Café des Arts, co-organized by the Alliance Française of Vancouver and the cultural services of the French Embassy in Canada, with the participation of Aurelia Bizouard, is a new event that gives local artists a chance to speak in a friendly place, thus opening the discussion with the public.


For this first Café des Arts, 2 experts will address the following theme:
"Understanding Aboriginal Arts in Canada Today"


This presentation will provide an overview of the Aboriginal worldview in relation to First Peoples' artistic practices, both historical and contemporary, and will be illustrated by artist Adèle Maskwa-Iskwew Arseneau.


Our 2 speakers will be:

France Trépanier, francophone artist and Aboriginal commissioner, based on Vancouver Island and specialist of Aboriginal art in Canada.  She wrote a book: Understanding Aboriginal Art in Canada Today, a knowledge and Literature Review. Based on interviews and researchs with other specialists, France tends to explore the understanding of indigenous art in the "great world of art". She works "with an indigenous research methodology", to integrate the teachings of elders, artists and other commentators.

Christine Anne Kobel, is the organizer of workshops on Aboriginal art. Born in Montreal, Métis, it is with great pleasure that Christine will share her knowledge and her origins for a presentation of the legend of the "bâton soucis" and the values around this rite. After spending years sharing the teachings of her aboriginal roots and having seen the positive impact these have on the people around her, Christine is now  devoted to full-time workshops on Aboriginal culture in Canada.


Each participant will speak for 20 minutes followed up by a Q&A. Stick around after the event to enjoy wine and cheese with us!
