Beyond Words: Stories of Our Time. ArtStarts Gallery is the only free, public gallery dedicated to young people's art in Canada. Beyond Words showcases artwork created by students from schools across BC exploring Indigenous ways of knowing and learning in this moment in Canadian history. From bentwood boxes to hip hop music videos, Indigenous and non-Indigenous students alike access the power of art, to express what their words alone cannot.
