Columpa Bobb is an artist, an educator and an activist. She is of Tsleil Waututh and Nlaka'pamux heritage.
Columpa brings all her passions and life experience to her work as leader of The Aboriginal Arts Training and Mentorship Program at Manitoba Theatre for Young People.
In her passionate SCENE & HEARD presentation she talks about the power of the arts to transform and to build, as she puts it, internal bridges. "I think the arts are a very gentle, very kind way to move from an occupied source of thinking to a free thinking human being", states Columpa. ~ Cate Friesen, CBC SCENE Producer
