By Chris Bose and Lisa G Nielsen

Play Video about Chris Bose artist gives thumbs up to creative arts builds hope

We looked at building artistic support in rural Indigenous communities
with an eye on LEGACY.


Chris Bose: Here is the video for the Trapline project, an idea that started in 2019, but probably goes way back further to discussions online and who knows where? In this video, eleven Indigenous artists are interviewed about the obstacles and challenges they face day to day in rural life as well as solutions to them.
