We All Belong: Student Art from Parkview Public School
The AGW would like to thank David Crestan, Anita Adamo, and Tracey Rilett for their enthusiasm and support of our We All Belong program.
Over the past few weeks, Derrick Carl Biso and Abbey Lee Hallett from the AGW’s programming team have been conducting virtual collection tours and live virtual visits with local schools to promote themes of belonging, 2SLGBTQ+ art and allyship, and anti-bullying. They’ve been receiving many artworks in response to this tour from students, three of which we are sharing today! These artworks all come from grade 7/8 students at Parkview Public School. Enjoy!

“This is my art work for the belonging assignment. I get that flowers and plants might not be the first thing to come to one’s mind when thinking of belonging…I guess I thought it was sweet how everything in nature, from flowers to animals, have a purpose and belong in an ecosystem, and humans are a part of nature which mean we all belong somewhere too.”
