March 26, 2014-12pm-2pm- The Flowering: An Environmental Art Installation

@ the Multifaith Centre at the University of Toronto

Interested in building a work of art reflecting on our relationship with the Earth? Come participate!
The Flowering is a communally laboured artwork that calls on participants to come together and create something beautiful in an act of solidarity. The artwork is made by laying coloured wood-chips on the floor surface to create a large-scale design that is inspired by First Nations' floral beaded patterns. In response to contemporary environmental concerns that undermine the integrity of our human relationship to the planet, this event aims to inspire a shared reflection through our embodied, creative action. Where do we, as humans, see ourselves within our natural environment? How does this relate to our spirituality or cosmology? How can our actions reflect this relationship to planet Earth?

Communal Creation: 12pm-2pm Wed March 26. Viewing from: 2 pm Wed Mar 26 until 2 pm Thurs Mar 27
