    In the fall of 1927, artist and author Emily Carr boarded a train in Vancouver, traveling eastward to Ottawa to see her first paintings on exhibit in the National Gallery. This is where her art was introduced to all of Canada and where she met the Group of Seven painters, and was inspired to continue painting the wild Canadian landscape in her own interpretation and style.

    On October 1, 2017, this historic trip will be commemorated on its 90th Anniversary, with a live actor performing as Emily Carr, from Vancouver to Ottawa. The purpose of this trip is to celebrate this historic Canadian icon, share her art and written works with new generations of Canadians.

It is the former site of the Neighbourhood Time Exchange | Downtown Prince George, which hosted a series of 9 community-driven artist-in-residence projects developed by Emily Carr University in 2016-2017.
