Solo exhibition on identity and belonging, a powerful gift to visitors
Environmental studies professor and visual artist Andil Gosine assembled a compelling multilayered exhibition that reconsiders his immigration to Canada as a teenager and early encounters with racism. He skillfully interlaces this charged personal narrative with themes of both servitude and hope.

Indigenous studies in public education
There are more Indigenous youth than ever before attending public schools in Canada. Like all students, it's important for them to see themselves reflected in the curriculum. Often, that's not happening. Jean-Paul Restoule wants to find out why. He will also examine how teachers can help Indigenous students learn about who they are.
