Intergenerational Celebration of Motherhood Exhibition

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” – Maya Angelou

This Mother’s Day we invite you to join us in a free, all ages, intergenerational celebration and exploration of Motherhood. Mothers and mothering are honoured in richly varied ways in many cultures and communities. There are many different definitions of Mother. How do Mothers see themselves? What are our connections to our Mothers, our Grandmothers, to the matriarchs who mother us and our communities in so many beautiful ways? How do our matrilineal ancestries and connections to motherlands shape us? How do we explore the many meanings of mothering in relation to ourselves and the land we are currently on?

Bring your mother, your grandmother, your matriarchs, and the people you consider mother figures in your life, as well as children of all ages! Join us for a day of creative expression through poetry, visual art, and intergenerational storytelling. Amal Rana is a Poet, Interdisciplinary Storyteller and Arts Educator. Her poetry has been published widely in Canada and internationally. Through Cambium Arts & Education, Amal offers workshops and curates community centered events that explore themes such as home, migration, matriarchal histories, and more.
