Story Stick Project involved a series of workshops that took place online and in-person in the past summer led by community artist Pamela Schuller. In these workshops, East End and Scarborough residents learned to wrap natural tree sticks with textured and colourful yarns, and - through this simple yet powerful artmaking process - represent, reflect, and tell their life stories and experiences.
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.
Story Stick Project Exhibit will be installed between two trees, in the courtyard garden of Fontbonne Ministries’ Mustard Seed Site, until mid-December. The exhibit is accompanied with audio and written stories by Story Stick Project participants, which viewers can access through a QR code or poster onsite. Co-created with local residents, the Story Stick Project Exhibit gives form to personal life stories, collective hopes, and visions for social change.
Story Stick Project is in partnership with East End Arts, BAM Collective, Fontbonne Ministries, the City of Toronto, and artist Pamela Schuller.
