Artists experience Gwaii Haanas © Parks Canada
Artists can bring new meanings to Canada’s natural and cultural treasures. To help explore these creative understandings, Gwaii Haanas and the Haida Gwaii Museum have offered a unique opportunity to several artists.
Our residency program has immersed visual artists into the isolated land and seascapes of Gwaii Haanas during a 10-day period. Guided by Gwaii Haanas staff, the artists had the chance to witness the best of the remote islands and forests and were free to carry out their artistic research. When they returned to their home studios, they created artwork to be exhibited at the Haida Gwaii Museum and in venues across Canada.
Through this unique outreach opportunity, contemporary Canadian artists are helping new audiences gain a different understanding of special areas like Gwaii Haanas.
