Transformation Tea Party

Transformation Tea Party

A fashion-forward tea party with performances inspired by the legendary Beau Dick.

Joleen Mitton modeled for the likes of Kenzo, Lancôme, and Vivienne Westwood before turning her formidable skills to “raise up Indigenous artistry, materials, and legacy with power, visibility, and deepest beauty”. Joleen, now the founder of Vancouver Indigenous Fashion Week, teams up with Indian Summer Festival to throw a fashion-forward tea party in a tribute to the internationally celebrated Kwakwaka’wakw carver Beau Dick.

Nibble on delicious bannock and chai, feast your eyes and ears on songs and stories with writer and activist Linnea Dick (daughter of Beau Dick), witness a gender-bending contemporary Indigenous drag performance by Bo Dyp, experience the fierce lyricism of JB the First Lady, and the beats of DJ Kookum.

Dress to impress as you mingle your way through a series of performances and activations between the Museum of Vancouver and Indian Summer Festival’s PAUSE Pavilion by the sea.

This event includes changing locations with a 10 minute walk over a grassy knoll. It is possible to drive instead of walk. Full venue description and accessibility information: PAUSE Pavillion

Schedule
3:30pm Doors open (Museum of Vancouver)

4:00pm Event begins with Trickster Tea (Museum of Vancouver)
6:00pm Event concludes (Pause Pavilion)

With thanks to Museum of Vancouver for their support of this event.

    • Books by Indigenous authors worldwide
    • Books by black writers and other people of colour
