Squamish arts practices historically includes textiles, wood sculpture, and song composition. Today we see all kinds of artists being nurtured from a variety of disciplines.
We also believe an investment in the development of arts practices in our community can lead to a vibrant, healthy, connected community. We need more arts practices in our community.
Dance. Music. Visual. Design. Performance.

2016 Squamish Youth Photography Camp
Kwi Awt Stelmexw is an organization committed to growing the arts practices of our community by hosting this opportunity. We want to support a new generation of artists exploring their gifts and talents to contribute to making our nation vibrant, colourful, and full of expression. In 2016 Kwi Awt Stelmexw hosted the Squamish Youth Photography Camp, an arts mentorship summer camp for youth with Squamish ancestry.
The 8-day camp was spread out over two weeks and hosted by award-winning Indigenous photographer Thosh Collins from Arizona. Thosh's work is "creating professional quality images of people to help promote positive cultural identity through the use of digital photo media such as: portraiture, fashion, editorial, headshot, street, and culturally sensitive documentary". He is an award-winning Indigenous photographer whose work includes traveling to Indigenous communities and offering youth mentorship projects in photography and wellness.
