Arts Partnership Success Story

Working with cloth art has always been a way to pass on the heritage of amazing cloth artists and to collaborate with cloth artists in other communities that have a very broad reach. The funding I received will enable me to continue my work as well as work with experienced artists who will help me to strengthen my knowledge base and raise my level of creativity.

Receiving this SOS was something that will give me the creative boost to continue in my work and to continue to educate communities around the issues of identity, continuity and creativity. It will also allow me the opportunity to collaborate with cloth artists in four different communities who share my CORE values of family, community and the meaning of creating, and having constructive dialogue around cloth art.

I am so grateful to have been chosen to be one of the SOS grant recipients for Spring 2016. This SOS grant will go a long way in helping the many communities that I work with.
