an interactive art installation and social engagement project

Parallel Lines encompasses:
15 Minutes of Fame
Parallel Lines succeeds in engaging people’s hearts and minds through interaction, play and conversation — motivating them to want listen, hear and consequently empathize.
The workshops empower participants to consider multiple different perspectives; share stories; listen to and connect with others; cultivate empathy and compassion; and express and release their emotions through sculpture and painting.
Sharing Circles are artist-facilitated discussion sessions in the galleries and museums; and also online discussion groups to offer a support network for participants following workshops and exhibitions.
Connecting and engaging with strangers through play, performance, laughter and conversation — empowers us and enables us to appreciate the values, priorities and perspectives of others.
Parallel Lines empowers people to voice intense, personal and political issues; deepen understanding; forge connections; and engage meaningfully with the arts.
"As a person who attended an Indian Residential School — the bed triggers memories from those days. I'm kinda scared of it — but at this point in my life, I also have to be aware that healing would only be a good thing." — Darlene Angeconeb, Residential School Survivor
