An Invite to all from Brock University and Rodman Hall
Posted June 7th, 2017 on Niagara At Large
An opening reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, June 8 for Voices of Eagles, a new exhibit at Rodman Hall by students in the Soaring Eagles Indigenous Secondary School Program of the Niagara Catholic District School Board.
The Soaring Eagles program provides an alternative learning environment, which focuses on the inclusiveness of cultural knowledge and teachings into the curriculum to help support Aboriginal students and to also provide education and awareness to non-Aboriginal students.
Following the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Report of 2015, students in the Soaring Eagles program have embraced visual arts as a tool for reflection and understanding as to what the report’s Calls to Action mean to them as Aboriginal youth.
This project has been co-ordinated with assistance from Kelsey Dick, Educator, and Sherry Emmerson, Native Resource Co-ordinator at the Soaring Eagles Indigenous Secondary School Program. It is presented in partnership with Peter Vietgen, Associate Professor of Visual Arts, Faculty of Education, Brock University, and the students and staff from the Soaring Eagles program.
Voices of Eagles will be on display at Rodman Hall until June 24
