Canada 150 Through Women’s Lens

Representing the rich diversity of our community. Paper collage community art.

Walking Strong Together

This paper collage titled “Canada 150 Through Women’s Lens”, features four large canvases which more than 300 people from our community helped create.
These four canvases are the common thread that have woven their way through Abbotsford and have included people from places such as our local Mosque, University Women’s Club, Coffee and Culture group, Christine Lamb Centre, The Warm Zone, Holmberg House, inmates from Fraser Valley Institution, The Reach, SARA for Women launch, Art and Wine walk in downtown Abbotsford, and many more friends new and old.

A variety of cultures, ethnicities, incomes and social status in our beautiful community are represented.

The purpose of this collaboration? To get to know the people around us while creating something beautiful!

Thank you to the Abbotsford Community Foundation for funding this art project! These four canvases hang in the Women’s Resource Centre at University of the Fraser Valley
