Artist Jessie Buchanan will lead participants through each workshop, creating acrylic paintings in response to questions: “How do you understand yourself as a Canadian?” and “Do you feel connected with your land and/or environment?” Together, Jessie and participants will be encouraged to work together on a mural that is set up with images of importance sketched onto it that can be coloured in or enhanced with each participants own artwork. The design will encompass geography, spirituality, and landscape to unite the Canadian Identity across the country.
