Multi-cultural arts project

A multi-cultural arts project exploring the perspectives of immigrant communities in Canada. 5 sculptures were created with individuals of each culture to represent their cultural identity through a life-size portrait. The works were informed by an information series hosted by the communities and through personal discussion.

Works pictured above, from left to right:
Filipino Petra, community leader from traditional headhunting tribe, wearing ancient necklace
Italian Domenic, traditional singer, wearing traditional costume
Métis Nation Niki, community leader, wearing traditional cultural sash
Portuguese self-portrait, descendant of Azores, wearing Fado style hair

Project made in collaboration with Connecting Cultures, the Government of Canada, the Province of British Columbia and the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria.
