In Conversation With… Reneltta Arluk

December 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST


In Conversation With… Reneltta Arluk

Friday, December 14, from 1pm to 2:30pm ET (please adjust for your time zone!)

In Conversation With… is a series of one-on-one hosted conversations featuring artistic voices from Canada and around the world. Join our host Keltie Forsyth on the easy-to-use Zoom videoconference platform for an informative, inspirational and sometimes provocative conversation with invited guests.

Conversations will focus on creative process and will provide an opportunity for artists to share insight into how they work, how they overcome challenges in their work, where they seek inspiration, and why they tell the stories they do. Following Keltie’s conversation with guests, an opportunity will be provided for participants to share comments or ask questions.

The series launches with invited guest Reneltta Arluk. Arluk is Dene and Inuvialuit from the Northwest Territories. She is a graduate of the BFA-Acting program from the University of Alberta and founder of Akpik Theatre, a professional Indigenous Theatre company in the NWT. Raised by her grandparents on the trap-line until school age, being raised in a nomadic environment gave Reneltta the skills to become the artist she is now. For over ten years Reneltta has been part of or initiated the creation of Indigenous Theatre across various parts of Canada and overseas as an actor, storyteller, writer and producer. “Keeping Culture Alive,” as her mom would say.
