About the Event
Evan Matchett-Wong is a Two-Spirit textile artist hailing from Treaty 6 Territory, with a strong focus on intersectional artistic practices, reflecting their mixed Chinese-Dene heritage and queerness. They will use Indigenous practices to facilitate conversation and ideas and create an open and safe space for participants.
