About the program:

What are our food sources and what do they mean to community members? What kinds of conversations can happen over a shared meal? “The People’s Garden” is an Ontario Culture Days 2022 Creatives in Residence project which looks at relationships between farming, food, creativity and community, with the main focus of this project being sustainability and food security. A series of eco-friendly art workshops at Farmer’s markets in the GTA, will introduce participants to elements of textile design (textile imprint design); image transfer and eco painting.

Artist’s bio:

Angela Walcott is a freelance writer and visual artist with an interest in painting, ceramics and mixed media art. She frames stories of community and the importance of mark-making as it relates to identifying permanence within society. With sustainability acting as a primary inspiration for her art practice she is always looking for ways to incorporate and strategize the use of found objects within her projects. As a BIPOC artist Angela is interested in producing art that considers framing and contextualizing art within historical perspectives as it relates to issues surrounding early African-Canadian settlement patterns across Canada.
