Emerging Indigenous Voices Opening Day Agenda

The Emerging Indigenous Voices: A New Generation of Artists faculty and artists will converge on the San Francisco State University campus this weekend to begin a two-week long artist gathering. During this time they will discuss and reflect upon their role as indigenous artists. Through the medium of visual art, they will go beyond the elements and principles of design and textbooks – their work will speak volumes through the indigenous lenses of culture, insight, and the senses. During the two weeks, they will create art – working side-by-side in the SFSU print studio and together paint three mural panels in public view in the San Francisco Mission District. Their art will tell stories of resistance, survival, healing, and new visions.

Project activities kickstart on Monday, July 11, 2011. Below is a snapshot of Opening Day events for the artists.
