“Experience Qalipu is pleased to announce a Virtual Indigenous Art and Craft Symposium to take place over the month of October.
The symposium will offer two sessions each week, a professional development session every Tuesday and an artist talk every Thursday.
Professional development sessions will include How to Become a Member of the Craft Council of Newfoundland & Labrador, How to Price your Products, a Virtual Craft Fair Information Session, and Social Media for Craftspeople and Artists.
Artist talks will be shared by artists who practice a variety of mediums including Jenelle Duval, Melissa Peter-Paul, and Nelson White.
Tara Saunders, director of Community Development at Qalipu First Nation, describes this event as an “opportunity to advance the professionalism of our Indigenous artists and craftspeople and encourage hobby artists and craftspeople to pursue arts as a career.”
