With a special introduction by former Governor General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson

One of our most celebrated and irrepressible artists, Emily Carr went against the mold to pursue her love of portraying cultures and landscapes with her brush. Open your eyes to the wonders and achievements of the trailblazing painter with former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. A long-time champion of Canadian art—and women artists in particular—Madame Clarkson shares how we can use Carr’s vision to foster a greater sense of civic identity, engagement and cohesion. Along with this intimate biography, learn about Carr’s Victorian ubringing, fifteen years in isolation, and how she overcame prejudice and patriarchy to live true to her art.

A leading figure in Canada’s cultural and political life, the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, PC, CC, CMM, COM, CD has had a rich and distinguished career in broadcasting, journalism, the arts and public service. Madame Clarkson was the 26th Governor General of Canada from 1999 to 2005 and is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards in recognition of her outstanding contributions in professional and charitable endeavours.
