Decolonizing Cultural Safety Education Through Cultural Immersion

This project explores Indigenous-led arts and material practice workshops as a form of cultural safety education, by fostering dialogue between non-Indigenous healthcare students and Indigenous students in Lheidli T’enneh Territory and surrounding areas (Prince George, BC). By pairing moments of deep listening with active learning, this team of Indigenous knowledge holders, designers and collaborators from Emily Carr University of Art + Design & The College of New Caledonia is piloting a participatory and embodied approach to tacit-knowledge exchange.
