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.
Community Voices is generously supported by Ruth Mandel – WHO GIVES FUND and the Private Giving Foundation, a donor-advised fund available through TD Wealth. Special thanks to our community partners Newcomer Women’s Services Toronto, Sistering, Toronto Inuit Association, Triangle Program, Woodgreen Community Care, Workman Arts, YWCA Elm Centre, and YWCA 1st Stop Woodlawn.
