Culture Days have arrived



It’s About Community Togetherness
“Cultural differences should not separate us from each other, but rather cultural diversity brings a collective strength that can benefit all of humanity” – Robert Alan
Join us in celebrating Culture Days
Making Change will be hosting the Cultural Tile Mosaic Project at the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, Saturday Oct 7 from 1pm – 3:30pm. Join us in this interactive drop in program, guided by guest Visual Artist Ashante Blackwood; no art experience necessary.
Create an artistic expression of your culture and what makes you unique, on a simple wooden 4X4 tile. Bring to life your culture where your tile will become part of a larger mosaic project called “Culture Across Our County”. We are looking to collect 500 tiles at different locations and this is your chance to ensure your tile is included.
 
 
 
 
Meet our guest Artist Facilitator –
Ashante Blackwood is a 27 year old fine artist and model based in Toronto. She specializes in portraits and concept art, her work captures the beauty and struggles of her culture and the process of her growing up insecure about things that identify her as a black women. Being a plus size model and full time artist is the dream and goal of hers. The bodies of works produced tell a story of her finding her purpose and finally learning to embrace as well love the features that make her the highest level of beauty from her ancestors.
