All Around Us

Program Overview

‘All Around Us’ is a community-engaged textile art program that will work with 10 self-identified women ages 16+ in the Thorncliffe Park community to learn textile art and embroidery techniques over 8 sessions, culminating in the creation of a collective art piece to be installed at the Toronto Public Library, Thorncliffe Branch in the summer of 2021. The program will use nature as a central theme and encourage participants to explore their own relations with nature while learning and collaborating in a small group environment. 

The program will be delivered as 6 online and 2 outdoor in-person sessions, dependent on public health restrictions and the preferences of participants. All outdoor sessions will observe strict social distancing and safety protocols, and participants will be consulted on their comfort level attending outdoor sessions in advance. Outdoor sessions may shift to online delivery if necessary.

Materials Fee: $60 provided for purchasing art materials

Honorarium: $100 for participation (must attend a minimum of 6 sessions and contribute to the final collective art piece to receive honorarium)
