Grade six students from Clinton Elementary School in Burnaby were recently given a tour of our exhibition Hear Our Voices. Conversation and questions arose amongst the students as they looked at, read and interacted with the richly diverse collection of work on display. When asked for their thoughts on the show, one enthusiastic student declared, "I love it! Beautiful artwork!".
The work in this exhibit was created by young artists from First Nation and public schools around BC, through the Artist in Education residency component. Highlights include scrolls created by First Nations' students in the Eastside of Vancouver that honour elders from their community and beautifully crafted bentboxes created by Aboriginal students from Hazelton.
