Humber partners on Indigenous publishing workshops

July 26, 2017

In August, Humber College’s School of Creative and Performing Arts will partner with the college’s Aboriginal Resource Centre, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Canada Book Fund to host concurrent, Indigenous-led workshops on the topic of publishing. The workshops will cover best practices for editing and publishing Indigenous writers and stories. “Recent events have underscored the urgent need for more Indigenous editors, as well as for greater cultural sensitivity in non-Indigenous editors and publishers,” stated Steve Bellamy, Humber Dean of Creative and Performing Arts. “These workshops aim to build capacity and ultimately support the publication of more Indigenous writers and content.” NationTalk
