Bridge Space: Discovering More Choices

June 19 - October 20, 2024

Discovering More Choices is the second exhibition featuring work created by students from Discovering Choices alternative high schools. The youth participated in a year-long workshop series led by local artists designed to connect them to contemporary art through making, experiential activities, and creative dialogue. The resulting artworks reflect the youth’s material and personal explorations of their inner and outer worlds – capturing this chaotic, beautiful, and fleeting period of their lives.

The youth were guided by artists Ashleigh Bartlett, Tiziano Lombardo, Eric Moschopedis, Jared Tailfeathers, Michelle Wiebe and Tracy Wormsbecker, who generously shared their unique and inspiring career and life journeys.

The Calgary Board of Education’s Discovering Choices high schools, located across Mohkinstsis (Calgary), offer flexible, inclusive educational settings that meet the diverse needs of students through personalized programming.

Esker Foundation is proud to partner with Discovering Choices to offer students creative opportunities at the gallery since 2019. Thank you to the participating artists and all the incredibly supportive teachers who have made this program possible.
