Join us in making a paper mache Mannat tree, which will be the centrepiece of our exhibition.
Our residency is around the theme of Mannat منّت, a word with Persian and Sanskrit roots that roughly signifies a wish, intention, or hope in the Urdu language. It is a coloured fabric that connects the past to the future. It is a symbolic gesture of exchange that involves tying colourful strips of cloth to trees near sacred places of Sindh.
The drop-in at The Ground Floor is free to attend, and snacks and tea will be provided.
We gratefully acknowledge support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council and of course, the team at Jumblies.
