Boyer also works in the field of curation and art preparation, as the curator and caretaker of the First Nations University of Canada Art Gallery and Permanent Collection. Throughout her time working at the FNUniv, Boyer has organized a number of symposiums such as Endangered Alphabets (2014), Copper Thunderbird: The Art and Life of Norval Morrisseau (2015) and assisted in implementing Performing Turtle Island: Fluid Identities and Community Continuities (2015).  Boyer is passionate about engaging with students through exhibitions and programming aimed to encourage critical dialogue around Indigenous issues.

Boyer is excited to be participating in many professional teaching opportunities, in the classroom as well as cultural programming and workshops for art organizations. Most recently, Boyer developed, and implemented, an introductory beading workshop with the Art Gallery of Regina.
