Our work is rooted in speaking with local artists and their needs for support and development. Our artists and creators are the heart of our communities. We value their stories, teachings, expressions, and the knowledge they wish to share.
Over the last few years, the Indigenous Resurgence Project has partnered with various local organizations to help support the work Indigenous artists are doing. The project has also been compiling a local artisan directory since the beginning of 2021 with the intention to be an easy way to search for local Indigenous artists and service providers.
As the project continues to grow, we aim to continue to support the endeavors of Indigenous peoples in the Central Interior region of BC.
A Kamloops-based arts collective that shares and showcases Indigenous artists, businesses, and entrepreneurs.

The Indigenous Resurgence Project was created for and is dedicated to providing platforms and resources to Indigenous artists, crafters, and businesses in Interior BC on a volunteer basis. Whether it's supporting artists through mentorship, networking opportunities, or providing special events or programming, it's our goal to help local artists with their creative journey.
Our vision is to create a thriving Indigenous creative community where artists and producers can come together to share their work and experiences.
Above all else, the Indigenous Resurgence Project values the artists and business owners, recognizing their hard work and dedication to their trade, and working to support their endeavours.
