WHERE AM I? Exhibition

February - September, 2022

WHERE AM I? is ArtStarts’ first traveling exhibition, developed by the ArtStarts Gallery team on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sə̓lílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

As WHERE AM I? travels from one place to another, it awakens new perspectives and different ways of engaging with our identities and the places where we live. It moves across territories, and invites us to ground ourselves on the lands where we are learning on by practicing respect for and relationship with the lands' traditional hosts.

Through movement, storytelling, and sound mapping activities, this exhibition encourages learners to consider the following questions:

Where am I situated?

What is my relationship to this place?

Who do I share this place with?

How can I care for this place?

How does this place take care of me?

The projects featured in this exhibition took place in various locations across colonial British Columbia and were made possible through ArtStarts in Schools’ Artists in the Classroom program and support from BC Gaming.
