G.R. Gritt – Exploring By The Seat Of Your Pants
October 20, 2020 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants is an organization which knocks down classroom walls and take students anywhere in the world, never having to leave their desks. It aims to inspire the next generation of students by bringing science, exploration, adventure, and conservation into classrooms through virtual speakers and field trips with leading experts across the globe.
For Secret Path Week, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants will be focusing on Indigenous education featuring Indigenous scientists, explorers, artists, activists, and speakers. This will be a valuable way to engage your class in reconciliation and encourage your students to “Do Something”!
G.R. Gritt is a Juno Award-winning, Two-Spirit, Transgender, Francophone, Anishinaabe/Métis artist. After living many years in Yellowknife and forming the band Quantum Tangle, they have recently moved back to Sudbury/Robinson Huron Treaty territory where they grew up. This homecoming coincides with a journey that they feel better represents them. With these changes has come a new voice both physically and in the growing magnetism of their songwriting. G.R. Gritt pulls effortlessly from the past to create soulful futurisms with their new sound that elegantly weaves the melodies using vocals, guitar, and new electronic elements. They create both intimate and anthemic music that would fit in a folk club, a dance club, and anywhere in between. G.R. Gritt is currently preparing for the release of a new full-length album titled, Ancestors, in 2020 on Coax Records.
