Petapan: First Light - Indigenous Arts Symposium

Location: Millbrook, Nova Scotia

For the first time ever, from August 15 to 17, 2014, a symposium event was held that was solely focused on aboriginal arts.  Petapan: First Light Indigenous Arts Symposium took place in the reserve community of Millbrook, Nova Scotia. The event came as a result of one of the ten commitments made in a memorandum of understanding established in August 2012 between the Atlantic Public Arts Funders’ (APAF).
