Planting Seeds of Change: Voices of Indigenous Youth

MARCH 8 - 31, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: March 22nd, 7:30pm

Planting Seeds of Change: Voices of Indigenous Youth is a collection of photographs and stories about how urban community gardens contribute to holistic health of individuals and urban neighbourhoods. The Medicine Wheel is used as a framework for understanding the holistic health benefits of urban gardening. As part of the Urban Gardens/Holistic Health Project, Indigenous youth in Brandon and Winnipeg, Manitoba, ages 18-29 years, designed, installed, and harvested demonstration gardens. They used the photographs that they took throughout the project to reflect on their gardening experiences. In this exhibit they share their personal stories of the physical, social, mental, and spiritual effects of urban gardening — the exhibit expands knowledge of Indigenous perspectives about health and wellness. The Urban Gardens/Holistic Health Project is a community-based research collaboration involving Brandon University, Brandon Friendship Centre, the Manitoba Métis Federation Southwest Region, Four Arrows Regional Health Authority, and Indigenous youth in Winnipeg and Brandon, Manitoba.
