The tenth annual Aboriginal Week at the College of New Caledonia wrapped up with an evening of storytelling and book signing.

Roy Henry Vickers, a renowned printmaker, painter, carver, author, keynote speaker and designer, shared how he overcame many of his life challenges such as being partially colour blind, as well as the things that he values most about Aboriginal culture.

It is safe to say that everyone who attended the event went back home feeling a little brighter.

Vickers is best known around the world for his limited edition prints. In addition, he is a recognized leader in the First Nations community, and a tireless spokesperson for recovery from addictions and abuse. In 2014, Vickers published his long-awaited third milestone book ‘Storyteller – The Art of Roy Henry Vickers,’ which is a substantial retrospective of his work and images of the past 10 years.
