Bridge Space: Discovering Choices

July 24 - December 17, 2023

In Bridge Space on the 4th Floor, find this exhibition by the windows.

Discovering Choices features works created by students attending Discovering Choices alternative high schools, in a year-long workshop series led by local artists and designed to connect the youth to contemporary art through making, experiential activities, and dialogue. The resulting artworks are a collection of the youth’s material and personal explorations of the world around them, capturing this chaotic, beautiful, and fleeting period of their lives. 

The youth were guided by artists Bryan DellosaJared Tailfeathers, May G N, and Sydonne Warren, who also generously shared their unique and inspiring career journeys.  

The Calgary Board of Education’s Discovering Choices high schools located across 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, to Kathy Brown, and all the incredibly supportive teachers who have made this program possible.
