Dark Day Monday
Good Ideas Come to Light
Twice a month, The Cultch will open its doors to the community with a free event – provided for the community, from the community. Each month, anyone from the Vancouver community can teach others something new – whether it be a cooking class, dancing, a yoga class, a party! – providing a space to learn, create and come together!
Dark Day #11: Our Community of Practice with Kim Senklip Harvey
The intention of the gathering is to hold space for the community to reflect, think and discuss about how we as community members, artists, patrons, designers, administration, critics and artistic leaders engage and impact Indigenous theatre.
Hear about Kim’s journey in writing and directing Kamloopa, an Indigenous Matriarch play, and how that intersects with her work in cultural leadership. As well as her Treaty with the Citadel and The Arts Club for her next play, Break Horizons.
Kim will use her journey as a playwright, director, actor and Indigenous woman to hold conversations around the challenges and opportunities she faces creating space for Indigenous ceremony to exist with the dominant Western Eurocentric theatrical frameworks of the Canada Nation.
Kim’s been all over the world since her last Community of Practice and is excited to do some knowledge sharing about her experiences. The good, the bad and the ugly.
Our Community of Practice is rooted within the value system of the sacred 7 Grandmother teachings: humility, courage, truth, respect, love, wisdom and honesty. These values will be actively held to hold ourselves accountable as we navigate these challenging and necessary conversations.
Bring your questions and curiosity!
