Thomas More Discussion Group 

Exploring Canada Through the Arts

 

What can we learn about our country by examining the arts? Through fine arts, performing arts, and literature, we will visit Canada from coast to coast to coast. We will endeavour to learn more about Canada’s people—from the Indigenous population to the newly arrived—and the places we share.

What do art and literature show us about the early relationship between Europeans and First Nations? What meanings are represented by the totem pole? How has storytelling contributed to our understanding of Canada? What role did French and English colonization play? How does music help to tell Canada’s story? How have newcomers contributed to the Canadian art world?
