Community Voices

Community Voices is a creative partnership program administered by the Textile Museum of Canada and delivered in collaboration with social agencies in Toronto. Encouraging creative expression and skill-building for individuals from underserved communities, Community Voices engages participants in immersive weekly workshops led by local emerging textile artists who designed unique skills-based curricula. This exhibition features the work of participants from eight social agencies who developed skills in bead embroidery, crochet, pattern drafting, rug hooking, printmaking, sewing, and surface design.

Organized by Khadija Aziz; workshops were facilitated by Lauren Cullen, Denirée IsabelLiz PeadNaomi SmithCouzyn Van HeuvelenChason Yeboah, and Yovska.
