About Where the Universe Sings: The Spiritual Journey of Lawren Harris
Where The Universe Sings is an intimate portrait of the life and art of Lawren Harris, a founding member of the legendary Group of Seven, and the expansive landscapes that inspired him.

About The Art of War
Brant Theatre Workshops presents an original play about Brantford’s own Lawren Harris, founder of the Group of Seven, called The Art of War. This multi-media production looks at his world during the years of the great war leading up to the birth of the Group of Seven. Join the Lawren Harris Movement for this one-of-a-kind production to learn more about the historical background of Harris and his family, and what was happening in his life prior to the Group of Seven’s early years.
