    The Artists’ Connection 5: Indigenous Perspectives

    Traveling throughout the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board and Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board, this art education exhibition offers schools a unique opportunity to bring Indigenous artists and their art into the classrooms in order to share their work and artistic practice with students. Beginning in September 2016, the exhibition will visit 9 schools per year for 3 years, with a possible extension.

    This unique program of exhibition and artist appearances is designed to create a relationship between the Indigenous visual arts community and the public schools, interacting with children at a most meaningful time in their lives.
