The Art of Reconciliation
Having worked in various capacities related to art, activism, and education, Michelle Sylliboy considers Interdisciplinary Art to be her first love. Born in Boston, Michelle is a Mi’kmaq Interdisciplinary artist who was raised in her traditional Mi’kmaq territory We’koqmaq First Nation. Michelle also lived and worked on Coast Salish territory in Vancouver, British Columbia for the past 27 years and consequently earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, and a Masters in Education from Simon Fraser University, Michelle is currently pursuing her PhD in Curriculum and Implementation at Simon Fraser University. Her educational pursuits are aimed at creating language revitalization dialogues and creating a change in people by using art and language as a way to make connections. “The Art of Reconciliation” will be the theme for the artist talk on October 29, 2017. How do we cross the threshold of reconciliation? Michelle has a vision to share her ancient hieroglyphic language by bridging the gaps between the Mi’kmaq, Acadian, and Gael community’s old familiar neighbors who have shared Mi’kmaq territory for centuries.
