Featuring installations, performances, workshops and community stitching sessions, A Stitch and Time investigates stitching as traditional practice, as activism, as a means of commemoration, and as a tool for community building and intercultural exchange.  In Lori Weidenhammer and Lois Klassen’s Slofemist project, community members join the artists to create embroidered patches commemorating feminist heroes. Mindy Yan Miller and Suzanne Miller’s Needle and Thread is a commemorative performance and installation reflecting on the Holocaust. To address the Truth & Reconciliation’s Call to Action #93, Heather Majaury and Terre Chartrand’s Neighbours: A Community Quilting Project encourages story sharing between newcomers to Canada and Indigenous peoples. In Hand-Sewn with Love/kashkwaykashoon a maen avik shakihitowin Métis artist Stacey Fayant will provide comfort, love and medicine by tattooing the skin of friends using traditional skin-stitching methods. 

The Generator is a seasonal presentation series featuring community engaged projects that are created or led by artists, and often presented in alternative and digital spaces to increase access to art and artists.
