It is the diversity of our community that most inspires me about the North End. So many unique perspectives, like the many colourful scraps of a quilt, are woven together to create a much stronger and more beautiful whole. I feel that during these complicated times, without diminishing the struggles faced by many, it is especially important to highlight what can bring us together, and the importance of strong and vibrant communities.
The art piece is a textile map of the north end of Halifax. The streets, blocks, parks, etc. are all made of interwoven colourful scraps of fabric and ribbon. It is hand stitched and embellished with embroidery.
