Image-Based Storytelling: Creating a Visual Narrative of the Self

Image-Based Storytelling: Creating a Visual Narrative of the Self

As we navigate our professional lives we are sometimes separated from our authentic voice. We participate in a way that is informed be the institutions where we are retained. As such, our identity is muted through professional constraints.

Join Dene artist Lisa Boivin for an afternoon of image-based storytelling. Lisa will explain how creating images to define the self is healing and transforms the working experience. Make meaning out of life’s tasks by designing a visual narrative of the self.

Lisa Boivin is a member of the Deninu Kue First Nation. She is an interdisciplinary artist and a doctoral candidate at the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine. Lisa uses images as a pedagogical strategy to bridge gaps between medical ethics and aspects of Indigenous cultures and worldviews. She is working on an arts-based thesis which confronts the colonial barriers Indigenous patients navigate in the current healthcare system. Lisa strives to humanize clinical medicine as she situates her art in the Indigenous continuum of passing knowledge through images.
