Both the talks and the reception are open to the public and admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item. The artists will be in attendance.

ID features the work of 8 emerging, Indigenous artists currently living in Winnipeg MB. The participating artists work in a diversity of mediums and styles. Each artist’s work focuses on exploring their personal identity and its role in their development as artists. All of the participating artists are either current or former participants of GAP’s youth programming initiatives, who are now at various stages in their careers as professional artists. Graffiti Art Programming was delighted to be able to work with guest curator and mentor, KC Adams for this exhibit. Admission is free with donation of a non-perishable food item and music will be provided by the youth of Studio 393.
