Setsuné Indigenous Fashion Incubator fosters new works by Indigenous artists working in fashion, textiles and crafts. Setsuné (set-soon-ay) means grandmother in the Dene language and we use it to acknowledge intergenerational crossovers, blood memory and oral histories. Our programming empowers Indigenous artists through professional and artistic development, exhibition of artworks and strategic economic partnerships, with amplified access for young Indigenous women and mothers. Setsuné is led by Indigenous women; we work in the spirit of a not-for-profit social enterprise within an Indigenous framework.
