Quilt of Belonging is 120 foot (36 metres) long collaborative textile art project, a richly hued portrait of the human family. Its 263 blocks portray the rich cultural legacies of all the First Peoples in Canada and every nation of the world at the dawn of the new Millennium.
Quilt of Belonging is a collaborative work of art that:
recognizes Canada's diversity, celebrates our common humanity
and promotes harmony and compassion among people.
The quilt consist of 263 11" blocks. You can go here to look at each block. This is a wonderful way to look at the quilt and the detail put into each block. Each individual block has a story that goes with it that is enlightening to read.
Most recently they have made a 48 minute documentary on the making of the Quilt and have completed a 'Youth Quilt Project', a 120' quilt made from artwork of almost 800 students from kindergarten to grade 12.
You will be inspired after reading the stories on the Quilt of Belonging and maybe even want to arrange for it to come to your event.
