A community arts workshop about clothing, memory & identity
Drop in to the Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House between 12:00-4:00 pm on Saturday, December 10th and take part in a fun, hands-on workshop that looks at memory & identity through the lens of clothing & style. Free & open to all ages.
Take part in the workshop and…
–> Have your photo taken & tell us about your outfit. Don’t worry – every piece of clothing has a story, however small!
–> Write or draw your personal clothing memories & add them to the Clotheslines archive
–> Bring in an item (or items) of clothing to give away, and tag them with a story or memory. They’ll become part of the Community-sourced Closet & the clothing swap at the end of the day!
–> Meet your neighbours!
Clotheslines is part of a collaborative artistic research project by theatre artist Megan Stewart. The first phase of this project took place at Elsewhere Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Learn more about Megan’s work at: www.meganblythe.com
This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between The Vancouver Foundation; Kiwassa, Cedar Cottage and Frog Hollow Neighbourhood Houses; the Government of Canada; and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast.
