ABOUT VOICES IN THE WIND
“Often times there are those whose voices are lost in the wind. We hope this display of Art by some of Calgary’s more marginalized citizens, including children and youth from the various shelters and agencies that give aid to the homeless and less fortunate, gives them a chance to have Voices in the Wind.”
The artwork displayed in this exhibition has been created by Barry, Gloria, Darren and Bill and other clients from the Drop-In Centre; Participants from Homeless-Connect Trading Card sessions and children and youth from Inn From the Cold. The exhibition has been curated by Bill.
ABOUT THIS IS MY CITY ART SOCIETY
This is My City Art Society (TMC) believes that the creative voice of every citizen has value and that we are all richer for having listened. The work that TMC does not only enriches the lives of the disenfranchised people in its programs, it opens the door for dialogue among all citizens. It builds bridges so that stereotypes can be broken down and common values can be clearly seen and celebrated.
This is My City is a volunteer-run, nonprofit society that brings opportunities for positive creative expression into the lives of some of Calgary’s most marginalized citizens: the homeless and those at risk of homelessness. Professional artist-mentors bring their skills and love of art into the shelters and service agencies year-round and connect with individuals to make music, theatre, and visual art together.O
