Artist Resources

Wearing an orange shirt symbolizes your awareness of the Residential School System in Canada while standing in solidarity with Indigenous peoples.

As an artist, you will receive:

  • initial beading kits (includes beads, backing, pins, needles)
  • workshops (virtual, phone) teaching the art of beadwork
  • mentorship & guidance
  • an honorarium for each completed pin that is returned to AO

*This program is currently only offered for Indigenous community members located in Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Cambridge. Materials and pins can be picked up or delivered to those interested*
