Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve of Canada (QC)

Developed through dialogue and collaboration between the curatorial team and the teaching faculty from 16 participating universities and colleges across Canada, the LandMarks national curriculum promises to deliver an unparalleled educational experience and a lasting cultural legacy.

By bringing the curators and artists into conversation with undergraduate and graduate students, the LandMarks courses aim to generate new forms of representation and experiential learning, as well as multidisciplinary works of art that will showcase the diverse talent of Canada’s emerging artists. Drawing on Indigenous epistemologies and readings that acknowledge and illuminate the ideas of land, identity, nationhood, and concepts of nature, LandMarks curriculum will reimagine the site-specific and transformative role of art seen as a catalyst for cross-cultural dialogue and inclusive citizenship in the context of 150 years of confederation.
