Art for Communities: A TakingITGlobal Initiative

Art for Communities cultivates creative spaces and showcases beauty in ways that support transformational conversations and inspirational moments.  It is about honouring and investing in the important role that artists have in bringing people together for social impact.

Connecting with our first family: PLANT SERIES

On May 9th, we launched the Connecting With Our First Family: Plant Series exhibition at Evergreen Brick Works. The images on display are part of a collection developed for the Connected North program in response to a request from Jason Jones, who leads Ojibwe Language Learning at Rainy River District School Board, along with Elders, teachers, children and youth from Treaty 3. Connected North serves over 10,000 Indigenous students in 42 schools based in northern, remote communities through virtual field trips with inspirational guest speakers and role models.
