The Good Earth Quilt project was funded by South Riverdale Community Health Centre’s Healthy Communities Grant. Through this grant, Arts Intersections Agincourt (AIA) will be able to create a collective environmental action collage called the Good Earth Quilt with the help of a local artist, Jega Delisca. Jega Delisca will be using everyone’s art to create a collective art called the “Good Earth Quilt”.
This project allows students to explore the human effects of climate change and to look closely at the Environmental Issues around them. Children will be able to express their feelings and voice their concerns for the environment through the Good Earth Quilt.
The Good Earth Quilt’s objective is to create a visual dialogue and empower elementary school children to express their feelings about the future of the environment and other related social justice issues.
As a collective we can make an impact on the environment. Together we are building a strong and sustainable future.
About The Artist
Jega Delisca, an artist and community builder currently working with Scarborough Arts. I was raised in Scarborough and currently work in Montreal and Toronto. I'm excited to work on the Good Earth Quilt project with Arts Intersections Agincourt (AIA).
My work is centered around the community, and the connections I have with my community. My focus is portraiture and I usually work with gouache and pencil crayons.
