Biography

Quilt of Belonging is a stunning, collaborative textile art project that shows there is a place for all in the fabric of society. This rich tapestry is 120 feet (36 metres) long and 10.5 feet (3.5 metres) high. Its 263 blocks portray the rich cultural legacies of all the First Peoples in Canada and every nation of the world. The artist Esther Bryan embarked on a monumental journey, one that would take her and the volunteers involved far beyond the confines of Eastern Ontario to an international stage . Her dream was to create and share a textile portrait of the human family. It would include every nationality of the world since all are found in Canada and give pride of place to all the nations First Peoples. The vision was to celebrate the complexity and the sheer size of our Canadian story, recognizing that there is A Place for All in the tapestry of humanity. The Quilts official Patron, Her Excellency, the Right Honourable Michaelle Jean Governor General of Canada shares our excitement on the upcoming Montreal showing and our commitment to work for a world with A Place for All.
