Winter and Spring 2021 with Jumblies:
Jumblies continues to make art with communities through COVID times, with a mix of onlinw and real-life activities: Our main new project for the year is Grounds for Goodness, an artful exploration of how and why people sometimes behave in good ways towards each other. This theme is weaving through many workshops, partnerships and projects, and will culminate in a presentation of new works at the Small Arms Inspection Building in February 2022. - The Gather Round Singers continue to meet online every Thursday from 6-8pm. They are working on new musical and interdisciplinary works. New members (from any location and any level of singing experience) very welcome! We are holding bi-weekly online sewing Embroidery Drop-in, Tuesdays 6-8pm. Bring your own needlework or request a kit to be mailed from one of our fabric art projects. We're working with Northern Ontario partners (Thinking Rock Community Arts, Aanmitaagzi, Ottawa Valley Open Arts Creative Studio) on collaborative projects, including our Grounds for Goodness tour and Community Arts Exchange. Our Talking Treaties team (Ange Loft, Victoria Freeman, Martha Stiegman and others) are creating a book: the Treaty Guide for Toronto, and planning a new dance film (Dish Dances) for the 2nd Toronto Biennial of Art Spring 2022. And the Talking Treaties Film - By These Presents: 'Purchasing' Toronto, has been screened at film festivals in Glasgow and California. We are collaborating with MABELLEarts on three online iterations of Artfare Essentials (called The Art of Community) and workshops at the Arab Community Centre of Toronto and Culture Link. Heartfelt thanks to funders who have generously allowed us to adapt and/or contributed new funding for COVID navigation, including: the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Toronto Foundation, Hal Jackman Foundation and Metcalf Foundation!
