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. Together, they enrich our knowledge of different places by inviting us to question their use and significance - symbolically, socially and environmentally.
