A City of Toronto Cultural Hotspot SPARK Project
How do we commit, care, and create social change needed for the good of all?
Story Stick Project involved a series of intergenerational and youth workshops online and in person in August and September. East End and Scarborough residents learned to wrap natural tree sticks with textured and colourful yarns, a simple yet powerful artmaking process to represent, reflect, and tell their life stories and experiences.
The Story Stick Project Exhibit was co-created with local residents and gives form to personal stories, collective hopes, and visions for social change. Each stick in the installation has one to three different stories wrapped on it.
As a form of climate change art, the Story Stick Project awakens us to creating together the nurturing care and commitment to positive change for ourselves, our communities and our planet.
The exhibit is accompanied with audio and written stories by Story Stick Project participants. Experience how the sticks hold our visions for personal and the global good.
