Creative Mornings: Indigenous Design: Unpacking the Past with Jordan Stranger
October 29, 2021 at7:30 am - 9:00 am
Jordan Stranger on “Unpacking the Past”
Pencil, paint, or digital, Jordan Stranger (Black Bear Man – Makade Makwa Inini) communicates the importance of life, culture and acceptance. His works are deeply rooted in the traditions within contemporary Indigenous culture. As an Oji-Cree individual, Jordan uses his life experiences to drive his artistic passions.
Jordan’s presentation for CreativeMornings Winnipeg will focus on his relationship to design from an Oji-Cree perspective, cultural influences and symbolism in his work, and the processes from which he draws inspiration while working with clients or for himself.
October’s Global Theme is DESIGN
We live in a world of design, an intention behind every encounter, every technology we touch, every structure we step through. Design is an alchemy, a marriage of material and meaning, investigation and inspiration, form and function. To design is to create — out of nothing, something. To design is to play — an invitation to stay open and curious and reimagine in new ways. To design is to think — a method of learning through making, scraping failed experiments for fresh insight. To design is to be human. Designers are called to operate in a way that transcends disciplines, making it possible to understand the world in all its complexity and envision passageways to more just futures. At their best, designers center the experiences of people whose needs have been overlooked, stepping outside of themselves and into their shoes. Design asks of us empathy and humility, if we are brave enough to answer.Our Trois-Rivières chapter chose this month’s exploration of Design, Olivier Charland illustrated the theme, and Skillshare is presenting the theme.
