âpihtawikosisâniskwêw (Métis/ Norwegian/ French/ British) multidisciplinary artist Moe Clark is a 2Spirit singing Thunderbird. She works across diverse disciplines of vocal improvisation, spoken word poetry, storytelling, and music to create meaning that is rooted in personal legacy, ancestral memory and embodied knowledge. Her approach to arts facilitation is participatory, inclusive, and reciprocal, engaging learners through land-based teachings, tools of empowerment, and Indigenous languages.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

There are many possibilities to be explored in my workshops, depending on the group's capacities, needs, and age. We explore the voice as an instrument for transformation and connection.

Example: "We shared practices centred around building better relationships with our surrounding environments through song-catching, deep listening and vocal improvisation practices. Participants were able to imagine their own vocal relationships with prompts to activate qualities of voice and movement from the natural world, including creatures, elements & landscapes. They were also enthusiastic to participate in call and response practices and circle singing, which were all invitations to consider the natural world around and within us as catalysts for musical discoveries." Other explorations: breath-work connected to medicine wheel (4-directions); collective songwriting incorporating poetic prompts, Indigenous / mother tongue languages, and earth-based understandings; partner work; talking circle.
