In collaboration with the Afro Canadian Caribbean Association in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada Fabric of the Diaspora Is a seniors wellness and engagement project working with textiles and the techniques of sewing, embroidery & applique to create embellished quilt squares which visualize the people/fabric of the Black diaspora of Hamilton. The project kicked off in Dec of 2021 with a lovely luncheon and speaker series . The pandemic put the project on hold until the spring of 2022. Meeting in the summer twice a month. The project is cyclical and is scheduled to begin again in December 2022.
Great Thanks to program assistant Charlene Forde-Smith M.Sc Candidate in Psychology Neuroscience & Behavioural Studies at McMaster University.
