Decolonizing our Artistic Practices
What does decolonizing our artistic practice mean and why is it important?
From the perspective of Indigenous Artist, Knowledge Keeper, and 2Spirit Activist, Albert McLeod, we will dive deep into the protocols of decolonizing our artistic practices. What it means to artists, community, and you.
What are the next steps to increase participation of Indigenous, racialized, and marginalized artists in the Manitoba art scene? How do we welcome more diverse and inclusive participants? This workshop will explore how to recognize tokenism and performative allyship, and support the becoming of respectful and authentic engagement for individuals and organizations.

This workshop is free. Please register online by 430pm Oct 13th the day of the event and a zoom link will be sent to your email address by 530pm!




Albert McLeod

Albert McLeod is a Status Indian with ancestry from Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation and the Metis community of Norway House in northern Manitoba. A lauded multi-media artist, Albert McLeod is a community leader sharing his knowledge of New Media art and Indigenous Cultural Teachings, how to work respectfully with Indigenous Protocols and ceremony within your art or curatorial practice, and how to decolonize the art world.

Albert hails from northern Manitoba, with a blended heritage of Scottish Hudson’s Bay Company immigrant and Woodland Cree. The roots of his work are based in traditional hand work, beading, sewing, and leather work. All knowledge passed down from his Grandmother and Mentor, a highly accomplished Cree textile artist and knowledge keeper.

Today, Albert brings his art training, photography skills, and knowledge of Indigenous art and design, to a new level, while embracing a more modern approach through the use of computer technology and online platforms to manage his career. While Albert’s primary career path has focused on community development in the Indigenous sector, it is his art training that has been instrumental in elevating his work life successfully into the 21st Century.
