A Journey: Indigenizing the Rising Sun with IPD Philly
Rising Sun Exhibition Workshops
A Journey: Indigenizing the Rising Sun is a series of two workshops with panel presentations and interactive activities led by IPD Philly (Indigenous Peoples’ Day Philly Inc) and Partners. The series is in conversation with the artwork Delegate by Rose B. Simpson, on view in Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America, and will provide participants the opportunity to learn stories of survival on Navajo Reservation and of Indigenous Immigrants in Philadelphia.
Through this journey of distinct stories and histories, participants will begin to envision concrete plans of action to challenge settler-colonial legacies, and to center and celebrate Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous Peoples’ Day in their educational or professional practices from Lenapehoking –the ancestral land of the Lenni-Lenape.
The first hour of each session will be streamed live on PAFA's YouTube channel, followed by an in-person, hands-on workshop in a small group setting. Seats are limited. Registration for each in-person workshop is first-come, first-served.
Scholarships are available to attend the in-person workshops. Learn more and apply.
