Kalum is an Indigenous artist working in collaboration with Colouring it Forward.
Founded by Diana Frost, an Algonquin Métis artist, Colouring it Forward is an Indigenous social enterprise designed to create conversations through the arts. The organization aims to create artwork which will develop understanding and foster reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
These murals will celebrate Calgary area’s Indigenous culture. We propose to paint murals that will feature
Blackfoot artwork and will be painted in collaboration with youth, a mix of Indigenous and non-Indigenous
youth, to promote reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. We propose to make
reconciliation murals which will show Calgary’s diversity of native cultures.
We are committed to sharing our native culture in a positive way and showing that Indigenous and non-
Indigenous peoples can work together to create beautiful pieces of art.
