Multicultural Day on The Esplanade
June 27, 2019
On June 27th 2019, in the context of multicultural day, Jamii brought together three visual artists who were invited to capture the diversity of the people of the Esplanade with live portrait drawings.
Accompanied with lively music and cultural stories this event was a celebration of the rich cultural fabric of our community.
Visual artists Alicia Herbert, Alison Garwood-Jones, and Andrew Patterson worked on capturing people through portraits encapsulating the beauty within us in their own artistic style.
Live performances from:
Haitian storyteller Djennie Laguerre
Indigenous storyteller Jim Adams
Québécois musician and singer Valérie Descheneaux
Syrian violinist Iman Abdul Razzak
and Albanian theater director Indrit Kasapi
Visual artist Alison Garwood-Jones also wrote a blog post about our event read it HERE.
