Be a part of celebrating art and culture, while honouring traditions in carving, beading, weaving, painting, and more! Help recognize First Nations artists throughout our province by nominating them for the Fulmer Award in First Nations Art.
The Fulmer Award honours excellence and inspires achievement in First Nations Art throughout the province. It celebrates the intersection of art and culture, while honouring First Nations artistic traditions, creating a platform for community engagement, mentorship and storytelling.
“I have been weaving, teaching, and researching the Northwest Coast textiles for more than 30 years. This is the first award acknowledging my many years in the art of weaving. The Fulmer Award is, at this point in my career, encouraging and validates my efforts in bringing the traditional arts of the textiles forward to future weavers as well as making the textiles more known in the milieu of Indigenous arts.”
