Another goal of Parts For The Arts is to remind artists and their supporters the importance of arts and culture to thriving communities. What role can the arts play in your city and town? Why is creative expression important? Are the arts relevant?

in short, yes, they are important. And in some instances, art and the expression of one's self can save a life.

Aaron Paquette

At 7pm we welcome artists and the general public to hear a presentation from our keynote speaker, Aaron Paquette; one of Canadaʼs best-known First Nations Métis personalities. He is a bestselling, award-winning author, an acclaimed painter and artist, an illustrator, goldsmith and cathedral stained glass artist. Active in his community, Aaron sits on various civic, provincial and national Boards and Advisory Councils. On October 16, 2017, Aaron was elected to the Edmonton City Counsel to represent Ward 4 in the City's Northeast.

He is also fortunate to be alive.

It was on a cold August night in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada that Aaron found himself on the guardrails of the High Level Bridge. A moment of crisis. Over the intervening years, through ups and downs and many mistakes and learning opportunities, Aaron has found a way to voice his message: we all suffer, but none of us are alone. There is a strength within us and around us that we can constantly draw on, not only to get us through tough times, but to propel us into the life we always wanted.

Aaron’s public art and mural work is colourful, flowing and accessible. In great demand, Aaron is an engaging, exciting and inspiring speaker and gives generously of his spirit in laughter, joy and learning.

In early 2013 he coined the term #Ottawapiskat which helped disrupt the way we look at the relationship between Indigenous Reservations and the Canadian Government in a constructive and humorous way. It was a stark and paradigm shifting marriage of the words Ottawa (Canada’s capital city) and Attawapiskat, a northern community under the grip of extreme poverty and suffering. People immediately saw the potential and began creating their own highly charged, incisive, or just plain funny tweets around the new word. Making space for other’s creativity and inventiveness is something that inspires Aaron’s work and efforts.His bestselling, award winning novel, Lightfinder is taught across Canada in schools, colleges and universities. He was a candidate for Member of Parliament for the riding of Edmonton-Manning in 2015.
