Exploring Canada Through the Arts

Literature | Art History

Course Description

What can we learn about our country by engaging with 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 populations 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? How has storytelling contributed to our understanding of Canada? How does music help to tell Canada’s story? How have newcomers contributed to the Canadian art world?

In this six-week course we hope to open a new window onto Canada through its art and literature.

Please note that this course has a maximum enrollment of 16 students and that TMI does not allow participants to audit courses for free.
