Making Our Mark
YOU’RE LOOKING AT
Artists, U of A anthropology students, and Skills Society support workers exploring themes of citizenship: pride, play, and freedom at SNAP Gallery
Citizenship is at the heart of what we do
Making Our Mark emerged thanks to an Edmonton Arts Council grant which brought together citizens with disabilities, professional SNAP artists, University of Alberta anthropology students, and Skills Society support workers. This collective met weekly in the Spring of 2014 in the SNAP print shop to share stories and make art together, exploring three central themes of citizenship: pride, play, and freedom. In June 2014 the work was shown at City Hall as part of the 2014 Works Art & Design Festival.
A great article about the project was written by Make Something Edmonton’s Chris Gusen – link here
- Bring a diverse collective together to share, discuss and make great art that causes the public to think about the valuable contributions people with disabilities bring to our communities
- Host art shows of the work made through the project in public spaces
- The art work from this project was featured at City Hall in the summer of 2014
- The art work will also be featured at the December 2014 Make Something Edmonton Sound, Light and Motion event at the Winspear
