What a spectacular weekend at KUC with a fashion show on Friday night and an art exhibition on Saturday. Shay Paul curated both events. Fashion designers Alicia Stephens Alicias Designs from Burnaby and Ashely Nicole Michel 4 Generations Creations from Kamloops exhibited their beautiful, stunning and amazing designs on the runway. Thank you to the designers, the models and the many volunteers for a great event.
Saturday, in addition to several artists who shared their amazing art, jewelry and fabric designs, a collection of works by local highschool students was displayed. Students were asked two questions to begin: “How do you define reconciliation?” and “How do you define colonialism?”. They were then engaged in informative educational and experiential activities and asked to portray their thoughts and feelings with drawings. Enjoy a few of the images that they shared. Thank you to the students and their teachers for sharing their work with us.
How could an event like this not also include Bannock by Bill! Awesome. Thanks to Shay, and her parents Bill and Maria for sharing a weekend of many highlights with us.
Thank you also to the Reconciliation Exploration Committee (REC) and other KUC volunteers who gave such generous support and energy to this very special weekend.
