Claude Latour is one of six Indigenous artists selected from across Canada to participate in an intensive four-month residency at the third annual Harbour LAB series.

Claude Latour 1961, is a band member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation, Maniwaki, Quebec. He has a Diploma of Fine Arts Degree from the CEGEP De L’Outaouais’s Heritage College, Hull, PQ (1996) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON (2001). 

As an educator, Claude has worked and taught with the Public and Catholic School Boards in Ottawa, the Ottawa Art Gallery OffGrid Program , the Spring Break Programs at the National Gallery of Canada in photography and silkscreening, as well as Algonquin College in the Media Design Program ( Creative Thinking). 

In 2003 he curated an art exhibit on Victoria Island situated between Quebec and Ontario on the Kitchi Zibi (Grand/Big River, Algonkin Territory, known today as the Ottawa River) featuring 11 artists from his community of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg celebrating not the creation of the reserve itself, but more importantly, 150 years of memory and survival. Presently, Claude is working on a project entitled, The Yellow House Series made up of Indian ink drawings having started in 2013 and due for completion in late 2023. He currently resides both on the west coast and in his home town in Ottawa, Ontario.

Coastline Lab is made possible with support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Creating, Knowing and Sharing.
