RED WAGON COLLECTIVE
may be dropped off at Open Door Designs or email Nancy
Davis Halifax for more information.
WAGON COLLECTIVE: DONATIONS NEEDED:
wool, embroidery floss, needles, crochet hooks, old sweaters
COLLECTIVE was formed in 2006 in response to our desire
to deepen our artistic, collaborative, and community-engaged
practices through residency projects that would enable us to
develop both intensive and extensive relationships in the Junction
- a rapidly changing neighbourhood in Toronto's west end. We
share a desire to work collaboratively with artists and non-artists
to create work that inspires new conversations; softens boundaries
between groups separated by age, culture, ability, and economic
status; promotes the presence of art in everyday life and contributes
to increasing public engagement in community development. The
work we create with communities is used in producing exhibitions,
public installations, and celebratory performance events.We
are currently working within the walls of the Evangeline Shelter.
