ON this Rock


CCAA on City Pulse News!


Carter Artists were interviewed by City TV for the project "On This Rock"! The concept, developed by Aurora Pagano, is to help create bridges between the artist with First Nations students across Canada through a collaborative art installation. With the assistance of grade 10 students Janelle and Janine Lee, a 'Speak Up' grant was secured for the project. The installation and exhibit asked First Nations schools to submit writings, sound scapes and art works which was displayed and used as inspiration for Carter artist's creations. The exchange of information and the research required brought phenomenal learning opportunities for the Carter community.

The centre piece for the exhibit is a tall free-standing house sculpture, covered in a mosaic of stones which were collected from all regions of Canada. The house serves as a symbol of solidarity for all Aboriginal people and for all immigrants who have worked to build Canada and who have​ made their home, 'On This Rock'.

Through letters, emails and social media, the project has received a number of communities' interest and participation. With the help of City TV,  the grade 10 and grade 11 project leaders were interviewed and their invitation for call to participate aired Tuesday April 4.
