Land as local artist (grades 9–12)

Billie Kearns and Jill Glatt’s exhibition, Who is Belle Island? asks, “What does it mean to be a local artist?” and “How can we honour the land with the stories we tell?”. Explore these questions with the short video and accompanying lesson plan.

Developed and recorded by Jessica Endress, Education Assistant, Special Projects. This video is accompanied by a lesson plan geared towards high school students grades 9–12.
