This exhibition is a community engagement project that includes both diverse artists and storytellers. The project integrated five intercultural story circles together with two community collage making workshops. The artists and storytellers represent the large range of Canadian identities, including Indigenous and immigrant perspectives.

First, we began with the question “What have you heard about us?” (the perceived ‘Other’). What do people base their stereotypes on? What are the consequences of stereotypes? And do we all experience and react to stereotypes in the same way?

Songs of the Soul: Father Douglas osf in Gallery A
A series of paintings inspired by William Blake’s poems Songs of Innocence & Songs of Experience
Songs of the Soul represents in paint issues such as the environment, equality/inclusiveness, aging, homelessness, depression, religious/racial differences, mortality and the need for social justice.
Father Douglas’ fondness for dogs leads to the imagery in this body of work that expresses how humankind has not changed since Blake exposed these troubles to the world over two hundred years ago.
