Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art

Our Trips

Created with intermediate learners in mind, Cedar Connections seeks to challenge students to engage in deeper and higher level conversations around Indigenous peoples struggles, politics, and arts of the Northwest Coast.  Centred in fostering an undertanding of the interconnectedness of land, sea, art, and peple, this program is a mixture of guided tour and faciltated discussion with an art based reflection activity at the end. An example of topics that may be discussed in this program are:

  • art and reconciliation 
  • tattooing, body adornment, and cultural appropriation 
  • economic expansion, environmental impact, and art 
  • art, land, and belonging

The content of the program will change according to our current exhibit, but will always have a foundation in exploring the works of Bill Reid.
