Story Sticks- An expressive workshop for all ages that is great for schools, communities, organizations, festivals, ceremonies and celebrations. I believe this would be an insightful and profound process integrated in to visioning, political and social justice meetings.  

 

Using sticks, yarns and other textiles, this workshop invites you to add to a collective story staff or create a personal story stick woven with reflections, memories, and stories of your life.  

Depending on the intention and location of the workshops people will relate the story reflected on their stick to me, write it out, record it or share their story in a listening circle.

I am deeply moved by the rich personal stories that people reveal on their sticks within 10 to 30 minutes. I have heard whole life stories, philosophies of life, or a special chapter of life’s journeys.   Creatively I find this workshop is accessible for all ages and abilities and also results in beautiful art piece.  What Rumi says is true!

 

Life Stories Can Change the World!

Open to me, so that I may open.
Provide me your inspiration
So that I might see mine.
—Rumi

Wind Sun Water Wood - update

 

Local community members of all ages created this painted tapestry June 2015. The tapestry is currently displayed at Dawes Road Library.

 


 

 

Dawes Crossing is a public art installation and community-meeting place located at the intersection of Dawes Road and Victoria Park Avenue in Toronto. The sculpture was commissioned by the City of Toronto and created in 2012 by artist Noel Harding.

Dawes Crossing references the human and ecological history of the area. The on-site solar panels generate a modest amount of revenue that supports electricity and Wifi, maintenance, and subsidizes community activities.

Activities like the Wind, Sun, Water, Wood.

This beautiful learning tree was created through The Pathways to Education in Rexdale during the after school arts program. The participants were grade 9 students of local secondary schools.  Students designed, sculpted, paper mached and painted the tree with Pamela’s guidance.

 

The 7 roots of the tree have been painted to reflect qualities or characteristics of life. Through discussions the youth determined what they feel is most important for their home life and living in healthy community. These qualities are from left to right: wisdom, friendship, love, family, joy, respect and spirituality.  The center root, family is considered the most important aspect of nourishing their lives.  Several of the 

leaves were painted to reflect the symbolism of the roots.

 

 The tree sculpture will be permanently displayed at The Pathways to Education office.  Final display picture and tree title coming soon.

Presented By Bain Arts Collective

 

From August 9th to September 19th, the Bain Arts Collective will be running free workshops and leading drop-in activities to create works of art with the Bain Co-op community and people of the Riverdale area.

 

We will be exploring the theme Campfires through visual arts, dance, story-telling, shadow play, food-making, puppetry, band, choir and installation.

 

Campfires explores the themes of communal gathering, transformation, story-telling, personal lineage, light and shadow.

 

On the evening of Saturday, September 19th, the Bain Co-op and Withrow park will be lit up with interactive installations and performances created for and by the surrounding community.

 

We would love for you to be a part of this massive project!
