What Have You Learned Lately?

Tuesday June 7th, 2016

Every October a group of educators and artists gather at the Vancouver Biennale office to share curriculum plans and project proposals for grade K – 12 students at schools across the lower mainland.

Every May the artists and teachers return to our office after a term of creative classroom endeavours to share the stories and lessons learned from students who participated in our Big Ideas program.

This year the guiding theme for the Big Ideas program was Art As A Catalyst For Learning, drawn directly from our mandate. 1500 students from 28 schools worked with 19 local artists on creative projects. Take a closer look at the different projects and the Vancouver Biennale artworks that inspired them here.
