Quill Conversations

Hosted by

The OISE Indigenous Educational Research Centre and the Jackman Humanities Institute


You're invited to join Indigenous JHI Artist-in-Residence Vanessa Dion Fletcher & special guest artists for Quill Conversations, an online conversation series.

Porcupine quills were used in Indigenous cultures before the introduction of glass beads, dyed and embroidered onto clothing, moccasins and baskets. You are invited to find out more about the diverse and expansive ways these contemporary artists use porcupine quills in their art.
