We're partnering with the Wall-to-WallUrban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery, and the Winning Art Gallery to launch and celebrate a collaborative music and art video – kindred.

kindred will feature youth from #walltowallwpg’s dance and vocal performance mentorship, with a portion of the video produced by mentored youth and BNB Studios. This weaved together video will include performances by Eekwol and T-Rhyme presented by sākihiwē festival and Bret Parenteau presented by Urban Shaman.

The event will broadcast live to the sākihiwē festival YouTube channel, the Wall-to-Wall Facebook page, and the Urban Shaman's Vimeo channel. It will also be projected onto the Winnipeg Art Gallery's exterior for Nuit Blanche audiences in Winnipeg.
