Residents Invited to Virtual Artist Talk with Anishinaabe Artist Jori Anne Cachene
The City of Regina invites residents to participate in a virtual artist talk with Regina-based multi-discipline Anishinaabe artist Jori Anne Cachene. The talk will focus on the tipi liner she created through the City’s Artists in Residence program, with support from Sâkêwêwak First Nations Artists’ Collective.
Installed in a tipi at the mâmawêyatitân centre in fall 2021, the tipi liner reflects the stories Cachene was told growing up. As part of this event, she’ll also explore key themes in her work, and her journey as an Indigenous female artist. Her work reflects traditional, mystical, and natural symbolism and captures intersectional themes of Indigeneity, identity, feminism and environmentalism. While mainly a painter, Cachene works in a variety of mediums that include acrylic, watercolor, ink, found object and fabric. She has an affinity for journaling, filmmaking, photography, digital media and songwriting.
A strong theme in Regina’s cultural planning process is the inclusion of activities that promote the importance of cultural conversations and exchange. Participants will be invited to submit questions through Facebook.
