Belongings sprung from Jumblies’ Grounds for Goodness project and combines visual arts, storytelling, performance, circus arts and music to explore what ‘belongs’ to us and how and where we ‘belong’.
Belongings is a community arts project taking place in Welland Ontario, with Femmes du Feu Creations in Spring 2022. It also had iterations with Jumblies artists and participants at The Ground Floor, in Brampton with Sharada Eswar, and Camp Naivelt 2022 Arts Week. There may be a Welland Phase 2 in Fall 2022.
