LandMarks2017/Repères2017 invites people to creatively explore and deepen their connection to the land through a series of contemporary art projects in and around Canada's National Parks and Historic Sites from June 10-25, 2017.

These projects function like trail markers on a journey across the land. They focus on multiple experiences and stories to revisit the wys we understand our histories and envision our futures.
