In September, we were part of the Danforth East Community Association Art Fair, where we made cool monster puppets with the neighbourhood kids. Such a blast for them and for us!
We are so excited about our Spring 2023 workshops, featuring some new guest artists. The kids were happy to have us back! “Why did it take so long for you to come back?” “We have been waiting for you”.
Our activities take place on the unceded traditional land of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples. This land is also home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. We ask you to join us in acknowledging these communities, their present and past elders, and future generations. This acknowledgment is the first step to our commitment to forming a continuous, collaborative relationship with Indigenous people. One of the ways we do this is to strive to form partnerships with Indigenous Violence-Against-Women shelters to support the children living there. Another of the ways we do this is to encourage Indigenous artists to become guest artists of our workshops. We know that forming connections will lead to a greater understanding and respect of the culture and art of Indigenous people.
