We are delighted to share the exciting news of a $65,400 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. The funds, awarded over one year, are for creating a presentation package that will include a 45-minute documentary, materials for live presentations and educational resources.
The Quilt’s first 6 years of touring have been tremendously successful. There have been 30 exhibitions and over 1.4 million visitors. But, it is impossible to fill all the requests. There are many who want to access the exhibition but can’t due to financial constraints, lack of sufficient exhibition space, or travel difficulties.
For years we have dreamed of having a documentary and resources that could assist in meeting those needs. This exciting new package will be designed to share with community organizations, schools, Aboriginal communities as well as individuals. It will allow us to further share the message, vision and history of the organization with all, both nationally and internationally.
