We are open to all possibilities. The renewal of the outdoor space at Adelaide House will seek to support and nurture a sense of belonging among the families temporarily housed at this place. We, the IRIS Group, will be challenged to develop a way of working where all involved are equal decision-makers and participants with shared responsibility for the projects’ direction, activities and outcome. We imagine creating a visual journal through photography, mixed-media/performance/installation events and activities, jointly developed with our collaborators. The achievements of this partnership can become part of the YWCA archive and, more importantly, a tangible and satisfying accomplishment for each individual woman, an accomplishment of growing an interconnected community that supports woman undergoing the trauma of dislocation, and deepens our relationship with the earth as a nurturing and life-sustaining environment. Further to this we have invited students of the ESL program at E.A.Lovell School to participate as well as other community members.
