Update for 2023

Greetings from the Quilt of Belonging!

Please meet the Board of Directors appointed for 2023 to 2024: Mackie Robertson (Chairman), Joanne High (Vice Chair), Nancy Warwick-Kingdon (Secretary), Rod Kingdon (Treasurer), Penny Bateman (Director), Anna Chiappa (Director), Jane Rietze (Director) and Ariella DalFarra Hostetter (Director). Our Board completes all business needs, strategic planning, exhibitions, administrative tasks and public relations.

Now for some news:

In June 2023 we CELEBRATED the Quilt of Belonging at a weekend exhibition in the Meeting Place at the Williamstown Fair Grounds… What a celebration we had!
Our over 1,500 guests included block-makers and visitors from countries across the world and of course Canada. Numerous teachers, support staff and over 700 children attended on Friday. Our next generation astounded us with their interest and interaction… The whole weekend was just wonderful for the many who visited and for the community who happily came together to support the exhibition.
This is the Quilt of Belonging….the project that continues to weave its message of promoting harmony and inclusion.

In October 2023 the Quilt of Belonging was awarded the prestigious honour of being inducted into the The Cornwall Area Arts Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is a key element to establishing arts and culture for Cornwall and region. Our Board of Directors were humbled to accept the award for a project that has impacted millions of people.

We are filled with optimism and gratitude as the new year begins.
Happy New Year to all!
