Quill Christie-Peters is an Anishinaabekwe arts programmer and self-taught visual artist currently residing in Thunder Bay. Her passion involves creating artistic programming for emerging Indigenous artists that foregrounds Indigenous methodologies, protocols and relational knowledge exchange. Quill holds a Masters degree in Indigenous Governance with a focus on Anishinaabe art-making as a practice of falling in love with the self, body, homeland and ancestors. She is the creator of the Indigenous Youth Residency program, a land-based artist residency for emerging artists that has run out of the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. During this intensive residency program, artists explore Anishinaabe arts methodologies while critically interrogating the structures of settler colonialism that impact our bodies, art, lives and homelands as Indigenous creators. Quill sits on the board of directors for Native Women in the Arts and is committed to creating sovereign space for Indigenous peoples to dream up our beautiful futures within. In her free time she can be found beading, writing, painting and strategizing.
