On behalf of the Board of directors and the staff of METRAC (Metropolitan Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children), we would like to invite you to the opening night  of  “ Fabricating Change Art  Exhibit“ on Friday, November 25,  6:30-9:00 PM at Queen Gallery, 382 Queen St. East (just east  of Parliament St.). Fabricating Change Art Exhibition is a Celebration of Women and Trans Art to Commemorate the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence.

Founded in 2002, THRIVE, the Multicultural Women’s Coalition Against Violence and Oppression was formed. THRIVE is a coalition of agencies and individuals working together to develop a response to violence against women of colour, Aboriginal women and their communities. THRIVE works actively for social change to end systemic forms of violence that women and trans folks experience.

Inspired by the Migrantas project in Germany, THRIVE worked with two local women artists to develop an arts-based installation project for diverse women to share experiences with and ideas about violence against women and youth. The project was entitled “Fabric of Violence: Fabricating Change.” Women’s art was displayed as part of the global 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence Campaign. This small pilot was a success and demonstrated the potential that lies in Fabricating Change. In 2011, THRIVE expanded its reach and engaged more diverse women and trans persons across the city to challenge violence against women and youth through their own fabric art. We invite you to experience this art that will be on display at the Queen Gallery at 382 Queen St. E (@ Parliament) from November 25- December 9.
